LPP in Earth Languages

Le Petit Prince / The Little Prince is a classic book written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, about the adventures of a little prince travelling from planet to planet, encountering a wide range of fascinating characters, landing on the earth, and meeting an aviator who had just crash-landed in the Sahara desert. The little prince recounts his observations about the world around him, including the importance of friendship, love, and trust. He discovers that the most important things cannot be seen only by the eyes.

This is one of the most translated books on earth. This fact combines some interesting things: that the simple french book is proven so inspiring, that we can observe its wisdom mapped out in so many cultures, and that we can appreciate the cultural richness of the inhabitants of the last planet: the earth. I can only register here the translation books I can keep in my small white bookshelf.
