Staff Reviews


I can still remember reading The Little Prince for the first time: where I was, how much I cried, how much I thought about it afterward. Reading it as an adult was a similar experience, but with different thoughts and different tears. Much like The Phantom Tollbooth, this becomes a slightly different book each time you read it, but I promise you will never look at roses or the stars the same way.
