"This presentation of heart-warming quotes from an all-time classic is a petit present to treasure"
Presented in a delightfully dinky, illustrated hardback format, The Little Prince: Wisdom from Beyond the Stars is the perfect little gift with a huge heart.
The Little Prince itself tells a story of wonder, and the magic and power of asking questions, and this collection of soul-stirring quotes captures the beautiful essence of the tale, laying bare exactly why Saint-Exupery’s classic is such a time-treasured tale for all ages.
The quotes also serve as a potent reminder of what matters in life, not least if adults can find a way to view the world through the wise eyes of children. Take this quote on “Life’s Important Things”, for example: “Grown-ups love figures. When you tell them that you have made a new friend, they never ask you any questions about essential matters. They never say to you ‘What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies?’”
Thematically covering childhood and growing up, love and devotion, nature and the earth, sorrow and heartache, the universe and its stars, the life of humans, and friendship and companionship, it’s a beaut of a book that’ll warm the hearts of even the grinchiest of grinches!
