Broken down in the Sahara Desert, desperate to repair her fighter jet, a pilot meets an extraordinary Little Prince. As he recounts his adventures, the pilot re-discovers the power of belief, the importance of doing what we can to protect our natural world, and the true meaning of friendship.

In Inua Ellams’ magical retelling of the much loved story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the Little Prince descends from an African race in a parallel galaxy, travelling across time and space seeking help to bring peace to his warring planet.
