The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I read the Sinhala translation of this book when I was 12 years.
It was a book for kids. Later I read it twice.
Both times with each of my two daughters.
Oh! my God. How can a little child understand what this eccentric has written.
Read and see for yourself.

About Exupery: He was an aviator. Whaaat?? Yes a pilot.
He did not like the more controllable aircraft like P-38 which he was flying when he disappeared.
He was an old school spy before James Bond.
Then he was a novelist.
A very colorful character.
Read about him after reading the Prince.
