Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
The Little Prince begins as a first-person narration by a pilot who crash-lands in the Sahara Desert. However, as the story unfolds, this voice is blended with his third-person narration of the Little Prince's adventures. The narrator occasionally uses the second person to address both the Little Prince (after he is absent) and the reader.
The Little Prince is narrated in the past tense.
The Little Prince refers to the story's central character, a small boy from another planet whose quest for truth and friendship leads him on an extraordinary interplanetary journey.
