Le Petit Prince

Hundreds of posts I have written. Scores of explanations and references about a lifetime of becoming a francophile. And all the while, a young fellow sat politely in the corner of my cerebellum, waiting for me to mention him: Le Petit Prince.I found a website which has the entire English version, illustrations and all, online for everyone to read and enjoy. But s'il vous plaît, if you don't already own this St. Exupéry classic, please also go to your local bookstore and buy a copy to keep, always. And don't believe the silly warning about its not being for grown-ups.

Do you walk by his old apartment - av de Tourville in the 7e - every day, Polly?

Wow -- where on av de Tourville? I've seen St-Ex bust in a park @av Tour Maubourg/La Motte Picquet.. and I knew his other relatives lived on Malesherbes in the 8th...tell, tell!

Merci for the walk down memory lane! I haven't looked at Le Petit Prince since I read it for a lit class when I did my undergrad degree. One should never stay away from that sweet little man for that long!

My favorite line is "on ne voit bien qu'avec le coeur. L'essentiel est invisible aux yeux.."
