The Little Prince 2: The Planet of the Firebird

By Julien Magnat
Illustrated by Élyum Studio

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

Still chasing the wicked Snake, the Little Prince and his sidekick Fox discover a planet devastated by fire. According to the emerald-cutters who live in a floating shell, "The Great Destruction" is the work of the Firebird. But, as the Little Prince says, sometimes to find the truth, one has to look past appearances.

  • Beloved author, name recognition.
  • Appealing reimagining of the character in a popular contemporary style with crossover appeal to young manga readers (cf. Avatar: The Last Airbender).
  • Recent graphic novel adaptation of the original by Joann Sfar has brought it back into the news.
