THE LITTLE PRINCERead about the other books on Callow's list.
by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
The author was a much-decorated French pilot whose plane disappeared during the war in uncertain circumstances.

The Little Prince is among Sita Brahmachari's top 10 books that take you travelling, Maria Popova's seven essential books on optimism, and Dalia Sofer's most important books.
