The important stuff: Written in 1943 by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (translated as The Little Prince)
What it’s about in a nutshell: A pilot crashes and meets the little prince in the desert. The little prince tells the narrator about the different planets he has been to and about his own home planet, why he left it, and that he would like to get back.
Why you should read it: It is a touching story and the little prince is such a beautiful, serious character. The last part of the story is particularly endearing to me. I haven’t read this one is a very long time, but I’ll be rereading it soon. It’s a novella after all, so it’s short, but very sweet.
Also, welcome to day 1 of Paris in July! I’ll be posting about books that take place in France and well as some other fun French stuff 🙂 And of course, this day also marks the beginning of my French List feature. Check back in 2 weeks for the featured book.
