I‘ve just finished Joann Sfar‘s new take on The Little Prince. I liked the art very much, and it was certainly very brave of him to redraw the prince, as the original illustrations are so well-loved, but I‘m probably too old and jaded to fully enjoy the story.

Look what I found - my mum‘s 1954 vinyl, Read by Gérard Philippe!

It‘s been a long time since I last wept - not cried, but wept - but this book fixed that real quick. It took me half an hour to read the last 10 pages, because of the tears. Literally just sat and sobbed after finishing it. This book needs to be read, because it reminds us what‘s really important in life. So I‘d just like to say thank you, Mr. Saint-Exupery. Your book truly brightened my life. (And broke my heart!)

WJCintron Your review of the book is so relatable. I read this one in school. It was mandatory. I LOVED it, and also cried. I need to re-read it, now that I'm an adult, but because I know I'll cry a LOT, I've been avoiding it. lol
I'm glad you loved it so much. I can't agree more with what you said at the end.
Did you watch the TV show? It was a cartoon. Not the movie, but the old TV show. Beautiful work that stays with you for a lifetime.

TH3F4LC0N Thnx! I‘m glad to see this book seems to have the same effect on everyone who reads it! And no, I haven‘t seen any of the adaptations of it; I‘ve heard the Netflix movie is good tho. I‘ll have to check out the tv show. 3mo

This is my most favourite book of all time! I reread it all of the time. It is beautiful and magical with such a great message woven into it. It is the most meaningful book I‘ve ever read and I recommend it to all grown ups! I have several copies that I‘ve written and highlighted in and my most special copy.

The Little Prince has a strange history (like most classic children‘s books). The author, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, was a French aviator, childless, and (at the time of writing) living under war-time exile. How he managed to write and illustrate such a perennially popular moral allegory, a “spiritual biography”, under those circumstances, I‘ll never know… Full review: https://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/the-little-prince-antoine-de-saint-exupery/

Crazeedi One of my all time quotes is from this beautiful book 10mo

KCofKaysville @keepingupwiththepenguins I need to read it again. It's been awhile. I have a French copy too so maybe I can learn a little French while doing it! 7mo

I love this book and rereading the new Folio edition with commentary was a treat. Unfortunately my 1-yr-old decided to color on the cover. 🤦‍♀️

The irony is not lost on me that the book my daughter chose to drawn on is one about child-like innocence and seeing the value in the invisible things you see with your heart, not the physical. Appropriate, no?

wanderinglynn Love this story. 10mo

I started to translate this in my French class in high school but I didn‘t get very far. Many years after that attempt I have finally read this book (in English). Learning of Saint-Exupery‘s history made the reading even more poignant. This is a lovely gem of a book and I am so glad that I finally got to it. I think I wouldn‘t have appreciated it as much having read it as a teenager as I have now with years of adulthood, love and loss behind me.

kspenmoll Lovely review! I have yet to read this. 12mo
Scochrane26 I didn‘t appreciate it as much when I read it in French class, but it‘s become one of my favorites now. And I agree about Saint-Exupery‘s history. (edited) 12mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The narrator‘s English accent was amazing. What a sad ending though ☹️.. a somber feel to the narration and such loneliness oozed from the story..

Ripley's Game is the only Ripley book apart from The Talented Mr Ripley that I re-read, but sooner or later I plan to re-read the entire series in the correct order.
The Little Prince 💕 I lost count how many times I've read it 😊
A kőszívű ember fiai (The Baron's Sons) was required reading at primary school, I re-read it in my twenties, and understood and appreciated it so much more.

Went to my first Japanese bookstore. Found some classics & Michelle Obama. It‘s also nice to know Harlequin romance translates in any language. 😂

And just in case, there‘s always the “Women‘s Useful Book” section. 🤣

Now I‘m watching Queer Eye in Japan, which might be even better than the American version. 🏳️‍🌈🇯🇵

Velvetfur You're in Japan?! I'm so jealous, haha! Great pic too 👍🏻 1y
wanderinglynn @Velvetfur yes 😀 I moved to Okinawa, Japan in June. I‘m blogging about my adventures if you‘re interested (wanderinglynn.com). 1y
VeganCleopatra May I ask why you moved to Japan? Seems awful to move period during a pandemic nonetheless to a different country. So many stressers. 1y
squirrelbrain I‘ve only watched the first episode of Queer Eye in Japan, but loved it (nearly) as much as the US version. ❤️ 1y
wanderinglynn @VeganCleopatra job. I actually accepted the job before the beginning of the year. But I work for the U.S. government & the HR process moves s-l-o-w. For me, it really wasn‘t that bad moving during a pandemic. The Dept of Defense has taken strict measures (much more so than the rest of the U.S.). Plus, it‘s just me. I might have felt different if I had kids. 1y
wanderinglynn @squirrelbrain I just finished it and it was awesome. I think the beauty of it is to show that even though there was a language barrier and a different culture, that people are people. We all have the same insecurities and fears and hopes. 💜🏳️‍🌈🇯🇵 1y
VeganCleopatra Ah that makes sense. Glad to hear there were some strict measures! I hope you enjoy your time there. 1y
Velvetfur @wanderinglynn Oh gosh how did I miss that?! (assuming you mentioned it once it twice on here!) I have an old friend from here in Liverpool who moved to Japan just before I moved to London so that must be about 13 or 14 years now, he's still there and still loves it. I'm sure you still will in years to come! I'll check out your blog too, thanks for link 👍🏻 1y
AlaMich How fun!! Are you going to buy any Japanese translations just as souvenirs? (edited) 1y
tracey38 I must have missed this, too! How exciting to explore a new place. I will definitely read your blog as well. 1y

My little free library finds today. I went into work and in the one building, there are shelves set up for the little free library. I dropped off several books but saw these treasures. I had “Half the Sky” but loaned it to a college professor who loved it so much that I told him to keep it.

‘It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.‘

I had not heard about this book until recently. My copy arrived today and I thought of just flipping through but I ended up reading it. It definitely made me relive my childhood for I share the pilot‘s and the Little Prince‘s view about grown ups. This is definitely one of those heart warming books that I shall read over and over.

A truly mellow book: the importance of savoring the breadth, length, height and depth of life, rather than focusing on narrow goals; looking at the world with childlike wonder rather than through the “rational” lens of a battle-weary grownup.
