By Delphine Dubos

The new adventures based on the masterpiece by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

The Little Prince arrives on a strange new planet where he meets the Aeolians, a people whose only source of energy is wind. They use the wind to heat their home planet, constantly under threat of glaciation. But the wind is growing weaker. The Little Prince discovers the source of all their troubles, a conflict between the Great Wind Mage and his son, Zephyr. To save a world, he must find a way to bring peace to a feuding family.
