This Filipino Version of The Little Prince Makes for a Great Christmas Gift
November 30, 2020

"Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince, which was originally published in French in 1943, is one of the most translated books in the world. According to the Guiness World Records, it has been translated into 382 different languages and dialects—from the Northwest Caucasian language Abkhaz to the Zulu language in Southern Africa. It was first translated into Filipino in 1969 by essayist and poet Lilia F. Antonio. And just in time for this year's Manila International Book Fair, independent publisher Southern Voices Printing Press launches a reprint of the local translation of the French classic, which goes by the title Ang Munting Prinsipe."
