Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

"[E]yes are blind. You have to look with the heart," says the little prince, which makes this pop-up edition of the 1943 classic a bit of an odd duck. De Saint-Exupéry's minimalist illustrations become full-color paper-engineered elements in a blown-up, two-inch-thick unabridged edition. Flaps lift, figures pop, tableaux emerge in ingenious fashion, creating a reading experience as surreal as the ... Read full review


Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

The door's wide open on my guess as to how this will sell. It may get a break, it may be read by the right people, those rare adults who can go over the border of the Never Never Land without a backward look, who can sense intuitively that intangible outer fringe of unreality that is wholly real to children.

Review: The Little Prince

A pilot crash lands in the Sahara Desert, and while he works to repair his plane he meets the Little Prince, a boy who has mysteriously appeared on Earth from another planet—one that is “hardly bigger than a house.” For the next eight days, the man gets to know this odd visitor; the boy talks about where he is from, and about the other little planets he visited before landing on Earth. As the man gets to know the Little Prince he also discovers more about what is really important in life, about how and why we form bonds with others, and how closeness and familiarity results in a sense of connection and responsibility for those we care for. This is a great story about the meaning of life: friendship, love, and life’s true priorities.

One of the greatest books I have ever read. I encountered this book in 7th grade, never expecting so much wisdom to just burst from such simple sentences. I have recommended this book to countless people, never telling them what to expect so they, too, can be blown away by how moving it is.
