Gene Ha – The Little Prince

ha_littleprince

I read The Little Prince when I was maybe six years old. It’s a unique book, oddly poetic and surreal. The prince lives on a lonely little planet, no bigger than a house and always under threat of crumbling if he isn’t careful. Eventually, he decides to leave his world and check out some others. He doesn’t use a spaceship, he merely leaps off into the void. It’s a meditation on different forms of being alone, and then looks at friendship only after it’s examined isolation. This was heady stuff for someone just learning to read.
