The Little Prince 6: The Planet of the Night Globes

By Christel Gonnard
Illustrated by Élyum Studio

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

When the Little Prince arrives on planet Voltaine, the nights are bright with streetlights flooding the cities. These are supposed to protect the inhabitants from the Globes, bizarre creatures of the night. But, even after Fox appears to fall victim to a nighttime attack, the Little Prince quickly figures out that the Globes are harmless-it's the seller of the streetlights, Laudion, who is causing the problem by playing up the fear of the people ... but to what end? Can the Little Prince save Fox from Laudion's clutches? And what do the Globes themselves really want?
