Product description

Review

"A touching and deeply moving analysis of a book that is cherished by millions. It is hard to imagine that its fans will not appreciate what Lassus has uncovered."—Booklist

"The story behind one of the world's most popular books. . . . Many will enjoy learning about Saint-Exupéry and his life and how he came to write such a beloved book."—Kirkus

“Luminous and enthralling . . . Everything that contributes to its magic is gradually explained.” —L'Express

"His subtle analysis illuminates the universality of the Word according to Saint-Exupéry."—Observateur

"Pierre Lassus, a psychotherapist specializing in the world of childhood, wanted to understand by what paths this charming little blond boy could move such a large audience. . . .The message of The Little Prince, according to him, connects it to the questionings in the Old and New Testaments. A voice in the desert, a sheep, an innocent child wiser than the adults, who 'sees with his heart better than with his eyes.' A child who falls from the sky to open the heart of a man who was lost. . . ."
Le Monde

"For the writer, The Little Prince was the opportunity to return to his childhood, in search of himself."
Inexploré

"A very fine study, inspired and poetic." —Le Messager de Saint-Antoine

"The author brings out the spiritual testament the universal message of this symbolic fable."—L'Echo des Vosges --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
