Category: Edition 2015

An eccentric old Aviator and his new neighbour, a young girl who moves in to the house next door with her mother. Through the pages of the Aviator’s book and his drawings, the Little Girl learns the story of how he long ago crashed in a desert and met the Little Prince, an enigmatic boy from a distant planet. The Aviator’s experiences and the tale of the Little Prince’s travels to other worlds bring the Little Girl and the Aviator closer as they embark on a remarkable adventure together.
