The Little Prince 8: The Planet of the Tortoise Driver

By Herve Benedetti, Nicolas Robin
Illustrated by Élyum Studio

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

On this burning-hot planet, only carapodes, wondrous giant tortoises, can safely move about and deliver resources to the cities perched on rocky promontories. And only one individual, Arobase, can guide them. So when he decides to let the carapodes fend for themselves and goes to work for Zyg and his circus, the inhabitants of the planet panic! Their cities are isolated, and no food or even news of their loved ones can reach them. The Little Prince and Fox will have to help them find a way to set their world back in order.

  • 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).
