    1. This was cute. The beginning was a little confusing and I only knew what was going on because I had read the original book.I love reading classic novels, then reading their graphic novel :) I started that tradition and that is what happened in this situation. I actually preferred the classic or the graphic in this case.

    2. Βαθμολογία: ★★★★★Ακόμη μια εξαιρετική μεταφορά ενός λογοτεχνικού έργου σε κόμικς που αγάπησα περισσότερο κι από το πρωτότυπο. Το σχέδιο και οι αποχρώσεις είναι τόσο όμορφα που δε θέλεις να γυρίσεις σελίδα. Από την πηγή έχουν κοπεί κάποιες λεπτομέρειες, αλλά η ουσία του [...]

    3. [Notes: mild spoilers regarding the original and Sfar's interpretations of the characters]"The Little Prince" is one of my favorite books, so I was thrilled to discover a graphic novel adaptation. Joann Sfar's version of Saint-Exupery's timeless work is both familiar yet curiously different.Right from the first page, Sfar is unafraid to mix things up. In the original book, Saint-Exupery begins by explaining his childhood drawings of snakes; Sfar, however, starts his graphic novel with a conversa [...]

    4. I completely love this book!I read the original book Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in French in my high-school French class, and fell in love with the author's charming self-illustrations, and its philosophy and what it has to say about relationships. Having said that, this graphic novel, which I found in my local library while searching for something else, at first troubled me--I thought it would mess with the charm or messages of the original--but I was pulled inside by the cove [...]

    5. I liked the original, and think this version actual undermines the quality of the original in certain ways, but the art is good, from a fine artist, and it helps me recall the original…. would send a young person to the original, not this comic version, though, as with Hope Larson's Wrinkle in Time. They are entitled to their own versions, just as filmmakers are of versions of books and short stories, but with classic tales, hmm, I see a pattern forming here in my taste and opinion about these [...]

    6. It is beautiful, it is perfect, but if you say that "you become responsible, for ever, for what you have tamed." I'll punch you in the eye.

    7. I believe it did not do the book justice, and it was a bit difficult to follow, but the illustrations were fascinating!

    8. The witty dialogues about human idiosyncrasies make me think that this book is meant for adults. But then, children are oftentimes wiser; the Little Prince would agree. This graphic novel version has also been nicely drawn.The original text is on my to-read list now!

    9. When you love a story, it's a joy to visit it through other mediums. So the ever-popular The Little Prince is an obvious choice for a graphic adaptation. I really enjoyed Sfar's version, but I'm repulsed by his choice to personify the little prince's vain flower as a thin, busty woman with a telephone in hand. Isn't it bad enough for the flower to be gendered at all? Does it really need to have all these 'feminine traits'?? That kind of threw off my experience; but otherwise I think this is a de [...]

    10. I guess my heart is made of wood these days -- almost everyone seems to love this book, but I think the evidence is misleading. You'll probably only read this if you're already a fan of that precious little prince. We've been asked to read this for our Resources for Young Adults class, and I cannot envision a young adult that would be drawn to this. This is for grown-up fans of the original, perhaps folks that first read it in French. I'm willing to be challenged on that claim, but for nowThis b [...]

    11. A stunning masterpiece of how when you listen to the child within you will find the answers to all your existential questions.

    12. I loved both this version and the other version of "The Little Prince." There is some differences on how both authors portray the artwork. Not a big deal. Both get the point across. This version kinda of goes more in depth compared to the other in my opinion. So if you get confused, this version may answer your questions. This version is also a bit humorous compared to the other. In the end it's a beautiful version! Well done!

    13. Belkide simdiye kadar okudugum en icten en naif ve en gercek hikayeydi kücük prens.Herkesden sakladigimiz o cocuk kalbimizin aslinda bu yetiskinler tarafindan heba edilen dünyada en degerli varligimiz oldugunu bana hatirlatti. Sade ve Samimi anlatimi ile beni bambaska diyarlara götürdü ve icimde keske benimde kacip gidebilecegim bir yildizim bir cicegim birde koyunum olsa dememe sebep oldu.

    14. Buku ini mengisahkan tentang falsafah hidup, tentang bagaimana hidup menjadi seorang dewasa. Dalam masa yang sama semasa proses menjadi dewasa tersebut, banyak perkara yang dianggap remeh bagi orang besar tetapi perkara yang remeh itulah kadang-kadang penting untuk diberi perhatian. Ceritanya tentang seorang juruterbang terkandas di padang pasir yang tandus kerana kapal terbangnya rosak. Semasa membaiki kapal terbangnya dia berjumpa dengan seorang kanak-kanak yang datangnya entah dari mana. Hari [...]

    15. เนื่องจากส่วนตัวชอบวรรณกรรมเรื่องเจ้าชายน้อยมาตั้งแต่เด็ก พอเห็นฉบับนี้ที่นำมาทำเป็นการ์ตูนก็เลยไม่ลังเลที่จะหยิบ แต่จริงๆ เคยเห็นว่ามีเจ้าชายน้อยเวอร์ชั่นการ์ตูนอีกฉบั [...]

    16. It is actually painful for me to rate this book so low. I absolutely love both Sfar and the original of The Little Prince. It's just sad that the combination of the two fell short of how great I was imaging this would be. Using an oddly-edited version of the text, the story reads in a weirdly choppy way, at points almost seeming like pages are missing (I looked back and checked the page numbers more than once), and Sfar's illustration work is fine, but it doesn't seem to capture the delicacy of [...]

    17. It has been years since I read the original, and I know this one varies from it but am not clear on how much at this point. Honestly, it's hard for me talk about this in comparison to the original because even though I love it, I don't have a clear memory of it. That said, this is just as poignant and moving as I remember the original to be. There are so many beautiful lines, and truths, in this book. As a graphic novel, it is well laid out and easy to read, and the illustrations, I think, add t [...]

    18. ahh that was refreshing. I absolutely love the original novel so I had to check out the graphic novel adaption. The illustrations! I was pretty iffy with the style initially but later then I come to appreciate how Joanne Sfar completely captured the characters, the scenery, the FEEEEELS and how it didn't alter the charms of the original book. I loveoloveloveleol the little prince and I am beyond excited for the film adaptation.

    19. Joann Sfar has been in the news recently because of his new movie about Serge Gainsbourg. The film sounds intriguing, and I hope it sends more people to Sfar's prodigious and excellent comic book catalog. To his credit, Sfar insists on calling them comic books, dismissing the highbrow 'graphic novel' as a term for adults who might be embarrassed in the bookstore. Sfar writes superb comic books for adults and children, and his adaptation of 'The Little Prince' is no exception.

    20. The simplicity of the book is its most arresting feature. The so called 'Children's books'have always impressed me with their charm and the ease with which they sought out complex human life tangles. The book is a brisk read, champions the less is more speech style and often makes you smile with its worldly wisdom. A book that you can re-read and comprehend something new altogether.

    21. A ingenuidade cheia do sabedoria do pequeno príncipe encanta! Não tenho como não lembrar das crianças que conheço, meus primos e priminhas e em como eles são verdadeiros, sempre nos surpreendem. Eu adorava desenhar quando criança e não sei em que momento minha jibóia virou um chapéu,rs

    22. J’ai adoré ce livre! Mais bien sûr c’est français- est je suis amoureuse de toutes choses françaises!

    23. I was expecting a lot from this book since it was my first time reading it. It was okay. I wasn't amazed by it.

    24. A classic, beautiful story that always endures in our hearts, that comes around only once in a blue moon.
