You don't know French?
What are those couple of other languages that you were referring to?
French is really easy and The Little Price is one of the easiest books you can read.

I recommend Katherine Woods. However, there is one major mistake: where it says
>Once upon a time there was a little prince who lived on a planet that was scarcely bigger than himself, and who had need of a sheep.
It should not be sheep and be friend.

There aren't any really good English translations. However, it is a simple story told with great charm and, since you have read other translations, you should make your own English versions. It might be an interesting experiment for you.

It's a poorly written French book. One of my daughters speaks broke ass french, her mother insisted on lessons, and she got the jist of it.
