The Little Prince as a Pop-Up Book

“One should never listen to the flowers…”

“The Little Prince will shine upon children with a sidewise gleam,” a 1943 review of the beloved classic proclaimed. “It will strike them in some place that is not the mind and glow there until the time comes for them to comprehend it.” And so it did, shining its sidewise gleam on generations of children and ageless spirits alike.

Given my soul-anchored affection for Saint-Exupéry’s gem — especially after glimpsing its remarkable creative journey — and my soft spot for pop-up books, imagine my delight at discovering The Little Prince Deluxe Pop-Up Book (public library), which reimagines Saint-Exupéry’s already beautiful and enchanting story in magical paper engineering.

The Little Prince Deluxe Pop-Up Book is an absolute treat. Complement it with Alice in Wonderland as a pop-up book.
