More about Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The Little Prince was written by Antoine de Saint Exupéry; it has been translated into over 100 languages, with 34 million copies sold. It is the third most read book around the world in this century; only the Bible and Koran are more popular.

Antoine de Saint Exupéry was born a century ago in Lyon, France on June 29, 1900. After finishing schools at Sainte-Croix-du-Mans and Switzerland he tried to join the Navy, but was not able to enter the Naval Academy. Exupéry joined the French air force in Strasbourg in 1921 as mechanic.

At the age of twenty-six, he became a mail service pilot from Toulouse to Dakar; later Exupéry flew to many South African cities during the Spanish Civil War. After German troops occupied France, he moved to the United States. While living in New York he wrote several novels, including his best known work, The Little Prince, which he also illustrated.

After the beginning of World War II, Antoine de Saint Exupéry moved back to France and rejoined the army. On July 31, 1944, during a mission over the Mediterranean, his plane disappeared and he was never seen again.
