The Little Prince 10: The Planet of Trainiacs

By Anne-Claire N'Leh
Illustrated by Élyum Studio

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

There's panic on the planet of the Trainiacs, a people whose sole means of transportation is by train. Trains are no longer arriving on time or at the right destinations, and the whole community is in disarray. Why does Archibald, the engineer who has devoted his entire life to overseeing the railway network, insist that everything is normal? Has he gone mad? The Little Prince will try to find out.

  • Beloved author, name recognition.
  • Created with respect for the original.
  • Appealing reimagining of the character in a popular contemporary style with crossover appeal to young manga readers (cf. Avatar: The Last Airbender).
