The Little Prince
2 journalers for this copy...
Couldn't find the BCID on this one, so decided to register it again anyway. Got this book from the Malaysian BC monthly meetup at A&W, PJ. Heard a lot about this one, think this one might be a little too deep for me.
But will read it all the same.
Think I know someone who'll want their hands on this one.
It's probably a beautiful book to some people, and to the rest a little pointless. Though I saw the beauty of the story, but I don't think I'll be adding this to my collection anytime soon.
If anything, at least the original illustrations of the author (Antoine de Saint-Exupery) are very child-like and innocent.
Makes me wonder why he wrote what he wrote: was the le petit prince real enough to transfer to paper and ink?
I've lent this to a friend whose been curious about it - hope she remembers to make a journal entry here....
Will bring along to the next BC meetup at Amcorp Mall on 5 Dec 2004.

Sorry, register it only after I have already given it to someone else! But it is a superb book! Don't think the kids here will appreciate it though! Serious literature for serious readers.
