I regret that I haven’t read this book as a child. I believe that a child and an adult would have different interpretations of this book. I believe that for a child, this book will be all about magic and adventure. An adult, on the other hand, would not be able to help himself/herself but interpret and analyze the book as the book is full of allegory and metaphor. This duality of this book might actually be a part of its charm- The Little Prince can appeal to both an adult and child.
