About this deal

The wide appeal of Saint-Exupéry's novella has led to it being adapted into numerous forms over the decades. Additionally, the title character himself has been adapted in a number of promotional roles, including as a symbol of environmental protection, by the Toshiba Group. [117] He has also been portrayed as a "virtual ambassador" in a campaign against smoking, employed by the Veolia Energy Services Group, [117] and his name was used as an episode title in the TV series Lost.

version: Amelia Shankley as Sara and Maureen Lipman as Miss Minchin. One of the most faithful adaptations, quoting many dialogues from the book and adding only a few new scenes, including a prologue set in India.

The Little Princesses: The Story of the Queen's Childhood by Her Nanny, Marion Crawford [Soft Cover ]

Katherine Woods (1886–1968) [82] produced the first English translation of 1943, which was later joined by several other English translations. Her translation contained some errors. [83] [84] Mistranslations aside, one reviewer noted that Wood's almost "poetic" English translation has long been admired by many Little Prince lovers, who have spanned generations (it stayed in print until 2001), as her work maintains Saint-Exupéry's story-telling spirit and charm, if not its literal accuracy. [72] As of 2019 [update] at least seven additional English translations have been published: [85]Guillain Méjane, (translated via the PoesIA project, a convolutional neural network, ISBN 9798621081355, 1st ed. 2020) I do feel, most definitely, that you should not write and sign articles about the children, as people in positions of confidence with us must be utterly oyster. If you, the moment you finished teaching Margaret, started writing about her and Lilibet, well, we should never feel confidence in anyone again. Lady Rose Leveson-Gower came about this time to Rosyth with her husband, the Admiral, who was stationed there. Rosyth is on the banks of the Forth not far from Broomhall. I was asked if I would take their little girl, Mary, who was rather delicate, for a short session every day.
