The Little Prince
The Little Prince | Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Available for the first time in an edition for young adults, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's classic story, The Little Prince, beloved by readers of all ages, comes to life in a format perfect for teen readers. "I’m glad I was asked to be the ambassador for this book. I suspect you may find that something of the starry magic of this story stays with you, as it has with me." — Gregory Maguire "A lovely story…which covers a poetic, yearning philosophy—not the sort of fable that can be tacked down neatly at its four corners but rather reflections on what are real matters of consequence." — New York Times Book Review At first glance, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s 1943 classic The Little Prince—with its winsome illustrations of a boy prince and his tiny planet—appears to be a children’s fairy tale. It doesn’t take long, however, to discover that it speaks to readers of all ages. This pocket-sized edition, perfect for teens, features Saint-Exupéry’s original full-color illustrations and the unabridged text, a reader’s guide, and a introduction by Gregory Maguire. Rediscover—or share—the magic! This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 4-5, Stories).

?? "Où sont les hommes? reprit enfin le petit prince. On est un peu seul dans le désert.."
"On est seul aussi chez les hommes", dit le serpent.

?? “Where are the people?” resumed the little prince at last. “It‘s a little #lonely in the desert…”
“It is lonely when you‘re among people, too,” said the snake.”

A few of my blue books (although Maya Angelou‘s book faded out in the photo, it‘s really a pale blue, a shade lighter than Kerouac‘s On The Road).

Scochrane26 You‘re like me, you have the little prince in French & English! I can‘t really read the French anymore though. 1mo

#BigInJapan #WanderingJune
I found a Japanese site showing the bestsellers for May of 2019. It wasn't translated, so I could only recognize two. One was Killing Commendatore, which wasn't surprising, but I wouldn't have expected the tagged book. Apparently The Little Prince is so popular there is an entire museum devoted to it (!)
@BarbaraBB @Cinfhen

Billypar In other internet searches, I tried to find if Tom Waits was ever actually popular in Japan. I didn't get an answer, but did find that some creative person adapted the song into a classic Nintendo score: https://uproxx.com/music/the-8-bit-tribute-to-tom-waits-is-big-in-japan-and-ever... 2mo
Tanisha_A Oh wow! This is fascinating. It's one of my favourite favourite books! I would love to visit that museum when I go to Japan! 2mo

“If I‘ve told you these details about Asteroid B-612 and I‘ve given you it‘s number, it is on account of the grown-ups. Grown-ups like numbers. When you tell them about a new friend, they never ask questions about what really matters. They never ask: “What does his voice sound like?” “What games does he like best?” “Does he collect butterflies?””

marleed @Cinfhen I started with a statement about bailing because of the odd quality of writing on that book. Then I thought about my beloved Little Prince. So the wives were relegated to the back - which I guess is fitting for how those wives were treated. 2mo
Cinfhen I‘ve seen the poor Litsy rating for Wives, which is a shame because it sounds so fascinating 2mo
marleed @Cinfhen I watched the resulting limited series first and liked it so I was surprised By my dislike for the writing in the book. I‘m a big fan of MCM and otherwise greatly enjoy history or historical fiction set in the 50s and 60s. 2mo
Cinfhen Most reviewers thought it was dry and poorly written 😩too bad 2mo

This book reminded me of a Twilight Zone episode. The weirdness of the story made it rather enjoyable. I think it shows us that the things we think are really important, mean nothing. We get so dedicated to one thing we don‘t see the absurdity of it. The things we invest time in will mean the most to us.

The Little Prince | Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I just had a student ask me what books I would recommend that feel like this one, that talk about love, and are inspiring. What would you recommend?

saresmoore Gosh, what a great question. A Wrinkle in Time and Mrs. Dalloway (really any Woolf) each strike a similar chord for me, but I‘m not sure if that‘s what they‘re looking for. 5mo
Centique Maybe The Happy Prince by Oscar Wilde if they don‘t mind short stories. We used to love the audio of that and it still touches me like The Little Prince 5mo
Centique Or they might be in that soul searching stage when someone like Mitch Albom really appeals 5mo
ReadingEnvy @saresmoore @Centique I needed more time to talk to him to really know what it was he liked. I ended up suggesting another book by the same author, Coelho, and Milan Kundera. I dunno. He's a sweet student and I'm just happy when they read outside of their course work!! 5mo
Centique @ReadingEnvy those sound perfect! I was thinking Coelho but wasn‘t sure as he gets such a bad rap lately. I still loved him in my student days - especially Veronika Decides to Die. 😊 5mo

#Riotgrams Day 22: A Favorite Classic

The Little Prince is without a doubt one of my favorite books of all time. I‘ve read it so many times, in both English and French, and it never gets old. It‘s such a beautiful story and I pick up little lessons every time I reread it.

The snake and elephant drawing is definitely going to be my next tattoo!

It took me a while to finish and at first, I didn‘t think I was liking the book. But honestly, it‘s because I haven‘t read anything like it before. Sure I‘ve read manga translated from Japanese, but there‘s something different about extended text translation.
Beautiful and sad. Very close to crying.

Sweettartlaura @Louise I don‘t think so 😕. I even went to the audio version, thinking perhaps it‘s best listened to. Even a charming French accent couldn‘t save this one for me 🤷🏻‍♀️ 6mo
Sweettartlaura @VeganCleopatra Yay 🙌🏻. I knew there had to be someone else out there with me on this! It‘s not so awful I hate it. But it definitely is over-hyped. 6mo

Written in allegory, this was a tough book to get into at first. I listened to it on Audible with my 6 year old. She loved it, although I‘m not sure she fully understood it. But that‘s the point of The Little Prince, isn‘t it? That children see and understand things much different than adults. I have ordered the paperback version so that we can see the illustrations mentioned throughout and we plan to see the new animated film. Book 6 of 2019
