SUCH A BEAUTIFUL EDITION! The pictures are stunningly beautiful, and the story itself has been a favorite of mine for decades. I wish they would name the artists that contributed to this. I didn't even know about this until I was looking at Chris Sickels' site and saw some sketches of the little prince and the pilot. I don't know if they accepted his work for this edition, but whoever the artists are, it's just incredibly beautiful.
And the story itself is wonderful. I don't believe, myself, that adults have lost wisdom that we all possessed as children. But, even without agreeing with the author's philosophy, the story is still powerful and moving. I'm reading it out loud to my 9 and 6 year old boys, and the part about the fox is impossible for me to get through without choking up.
I love the original version, but this is a beautiful addition to the family library. I'm very, very glad I came across it!
