8.The Little Prince

Best-Selling Books

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was one of the best French writers and poets, who published The Little Prince in 1943.  Since then, the book has sold over 80 million copies worldwide. The book is written as a narrative of a fictional airplane pilot who crashed in the Sahara Desert. The Little Prince is, in fact, a young blonde boy who the pilot happens to befriend in the desert. As one of the best tales of friendship and survival, the book rightly secures the eighth spot in the list of the best-selling books of the world.
