The Little Prince is a famous book.
I read it for the first time when I was intermediate in English and found parts of it difficult and hard to follow.
The content seemed to me unusual (maybe old-fashioned?) phrasing with a lot of rare vocabulary.
I'm surprised when I see it recommended for beginners. I thinks it was recommended because it is in the top 2 most translated books.
But in common sentences contain a maximum of two clauses, introducing the future tenses will and going to, present continuous for future meaning, and comparatives and superlatives.
Although if you've read it previously in your native language it would be a bit easier.
