Tuesday, September 3, the Little Prince visited the Vieux-Port of Montreal, for the Montreal « Escales Improbables ».

This is where a collaborative mural fresco is set. The children will be invited to draw with chalk their own planet on it, amongst the Little Prince constellation.

The event, entitled « Draw your planet » has opened at 17:30. The mural will move into different parts of the city during the autumn. It will include the Museum of Fine Arts during the Days of Culture, as well as Musee Grevin Montreal. It will then be offered at the CHU Sainte-Justine.

The event « Draw your planet » is co-organized by Gallimard and Succession Saint-Exupéry d’Agay, with the support of many partners :  EIM – Consulat général de France à Québec – Air France – MBA Mtl – Télé-Québec – BAnQ – Grévin Montréal – Trudeau Corporation – Fondation et CHU Sainte-Justine – Excentris –  JackWorld Inc.

Mike Greenwood unlocks the secrets of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic novella, 70 years after it was first published.

Barely 100 pages long, The Little Prince is one of the most read books in the world. Like the little prince himself, his creator Antoine de Saint Exupéry has become an enigma. An aristocrat and an aviator, he wrote The Little Prince in exile in America, when the world was at war and France was under Nazi occupation. Barely two years later he was dead – having failed to return from a reconnaissance mission over his homeland. His body was never found.

But the fable-like book he left behind continues to captivate generations of readers, from the child to the adult. Why?

« It is only with one’s heart that one can see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye. » Is it a simple children’s story engaging with simple truths about love, experience and loss? A manifesto for humanist values in time of strife? Or a manual for living on our fragile planet?

Mike Greenwood journeys to Paris to unravel the origins, meaning and enduring appeal of Le Petit Prince. He meets Saint-Exupery’s nephew, Francois d’Agay, now 87, who remembers visits from Uncle Antoine in the 1930s, and Mike enters the inner circle of ‘Saint-Exupérians’ who have made it their life’s work to interpret the symbols, biographical parallels and true message of the book.

The novelist Tracey Chevalier and children’s author Michael Rosen also share their personal insights into the French classic, which is featured in a series of evocative readings.

The lamplighter


It may be well that this man is absurd. But he is not so absurd as the king, the conceited man, the businessman, and the tippler. For at least his work has some meaning. When he lights his street lamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower. When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep. That is a beautiful occupation. And since it is beautiful, it is truly useful.
