Perspectives of a Lady, Gentleman & Dane

I have had a huge fascination with the Little Prince since the first time I read it in Russian, almost to the point of wanting to teach myself French so I can read a non translated version of the book. I was very excited to see that there is now another movie version coming out in 2015!

The movie trailer is in French so I didn’t understand a word but the whole thing looked so pretty and magical that I just want to run home, grab a copy of the book and pull myself into the little prince world again.

What do you think of the trailer? Have you read the book?

There was an exhibit a few months ago in NYC, if you want some more details on the book and the writer behind it, here.

If you don’t already know how obsessed I am over the Little Prince, here is another example.

While we were out window shopping in Montreal, we saw an adorable little bookstore. Once inside I found this sticky memo pad with Little Prince illustrations. Its now sitting on my work desk but I find it too cute to actually write on.

Once home, I browsed through etsy and found the memo pad available in this cute store.

I have no self control though and ended up finding this Little Prince referenced necklace from an etsy store by Natalia. Its already in my shopping cart.

Do you have any obsessions with certain characters or stories that you end up buying way too many things of? My weakness is Little Prince and anything Great Dane related.

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I don’t care where you live or where you grew up, if you have not read the Little Prince, here is a big push, READ IT!  The first time I read this story in Russian, I was still pretty young and was slightly confused but pulled into these strange characters illuminated by the authors poetic style of writing. As I have gotten older and have read different versions & publications, my love has only grown for the characters and the different emotions that the story brings out.

Which made me extremely excited to find out there is an exhibit regarding the author Antoine de Saint-Exupery and the path of creating the story of The Little Prince. Read more…
