In 2023, The Little Prince will celebrate 80 years of unsurpassed success. It is one of the most published and translated books in the world (by some accounts, second only to The Bible). Never before have its themes of loneliness, loss, love, and friendship been more relevant. While The Little Prince is packaged for children, it is appreciated and celebrated by all ages. This edition includes the entire, unmodified, original text by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, first published in English after his exile to the U.S. in 1943. The story is accompanied by exclusive illustrations from Mondo Mombo, a well-known, Italian children's-art firm founded by Claudia Bordin.
Claudia Bordin is known for her ability to mix colors, imagination, and flair. She is the powerhouse behind the Italian art brand Mondo Mombo. In addition to her success with several publishing houses and ad agencies, Bordin has taught art and design to widen the imagination of young schoolchildren.
