The Little Prince is a classic tale of equal appeal to children and adults.

First published in 1943, the year before the author's death in action, this translation contains Saint-Exupery's delightful illustratio... View more info

Introduction and Notes by Dr David Rogers, Kingston University. "There he lay looking as if youth had been half-renewed, for the white hair and moustache were changed to dark iron-grey, the cheeks were fuller, and the white skin seemed ruby-red underneath; the mouth was redder than ever, for on the lips were gouts of fresh blood, which trickled from the corners of the mouth and ran over the chin and neck. Even the deep, burning eyes seemed set amongst the swollen flesh, ... View more info

This is a beautiful gift edition of the classic novel. It was an instant bestseller upon its release, capturing the spirit of the roaring twenties.

F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby brilliantly captures the disillusion of a society obsessed with wealth and status. Young, handsome and fabulously rich, Jay Gatsby appears to have it all, yet he yearns for the one thing that will always be out of his reach, the absence of which renders his life of glittering parties and bright young things ultimately hollow. Gatsby's tragic pursuit of his dream is often cited as the Great American Novel. View more info

Uncle Tom's Cabin is the most popular, influential and controversial book written by an American.
