"Designed and scored, respectively, by Yann Seabra and Frank Moon, it looks and sounds a treat." "...another plus (is) Moon’s flavourful, gently and varyingly rhythmical score." ★★★★ The Times
"...the unfailingly inventive and listenable Frank Moon... The Little Prince definitely has its longueurs but these are effortlessly bridged by Moon’s soundtrack, a polyglot mix of Spanish, Hellenic and Mozarabic music played (by the composer) on guitar, bouzouki, penny whistle and bedspring. Hardbacks of Saint-Exupéry’s classic were on sale in the foyer, but what I really wanted was the CD . . ." Financial Times
"Frank Moon’s enchanting score skips from jig to cabaret to chorale." The Guardian
