le petit prince

My long reserved and long desired copy of Le Petit Prince finally arrived today.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince is one of my all-time favorite books.  I cherish it for its simplicity and directness.  As much as I love the book in its English version, I wanted to get the original French version as part of my (on-off) French lessons.  Every now and then I listen to my audios or watch a French Film to help me.  And I thought that making myself read a novel, even if it is only a children’s book, would help me in learning as well.  I know avec and nous and bonjour and asseyez-vous, but not much else.  At least I know some, and the desire to learn has never left me.

One day it’s going to happen: me speaking French fluently.

Oui?

Oui!

By the way, this copy was really hard to find.  I thought I might have to go to France to get me a copy.  Luckily, my favorite haunt of an online shop had a copy.  The hardbound English version was from there as well.  The shop has some really good selection of books.

  1. Hi! The Little Prince is one of my favorite books as well! Have you seen the Le Petit Prince Moleskin? It’s gorgeous. There is also The Little Prince Deluxe Pop-up book that I’ve been drooling over for the longest time. 🙂

    • Hi! Thanks for visting my blog. No, I haven’t seent Le Petit Prince Moleskin. I’m not sure I’m a fan of moleskin yet. I know about it, but I think I prefer the cheaper notebooks I won’t feel too shy to write or doodle in.
