I was given this copy of The Little Prince over 30 years ago, by a kind lady who intimated that it was not really a book just for children.
One of Danica’s log cabin quilts made a nice background.
When a friend said recently that he had not read The Little Prince but wanted to, I decided to reread it and pass it on. It’s a strange little book by an author whose life and death were mysterious, too.
The book’s suggested messages are clear and widely enough accepted to make the story a classic. Parts of the metaphor don’t reach me, but they do make a reader ponder, and feel.
