Today is the last day to participate!
An exhibition under the theme of “Le Petit Prince” (The Little Prince), one of the most beloved children’s stories of all time, will be organized in Vietnam’s capital Hanoi next month.
The month-long event, titled “Le Petit Prince’s Journey,” will feature scans of original manuscript pages produced by the book’s author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, selections of artistic photographs by Vincent Nguyen of locations around the world traveled by Saint-Exupéry, and a rare color film of Saint-Exupéry in Canada in 1942 when he worked on “Le Petit Prince.”
First published in 1943, “Le Petit Prince” is a novel and the most famous work of the French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
Since its first publication, the novel has been adapted to numerous art forms and media, including audio recordings, radio plays, live stage, film screen, television, ballet, and operatic works.
“Le Petit Prince’s Journey” will start from the Children’s Day on June 1 to 30 at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi at 15 Ngo Quyen Street in Hoan Kiem District.
Friendz, a German publisher, has released a new album, with various activities around the Little Prince’s adventures.
The book includes coloring, creative games and a double page of stickers.
When the two designers wanted to adapt the Little Prince, they tackled a big job! They first had to find the right position for the little guy: one that respects both the original design, and the technical constraints due to the material.
Available in stores in early June, the lamp of the Little Prince by Mr Maria is a real achievement.
See it for yourself!

Peter Sís is a worldwide known author and illustrator. He has created a beautiful album about Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s life.
« When I was about 12 or 13, my father gave me The Little Prince. He was making sure that I knew it was a special book. I’d seen the name of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, but to me it seemed a very French name and I was not excited about him as a person. I just read the book, and it was a life-changing experience, because I was in this little country, which was sort of closed and dark, and all of a sudden there was this book which was telling me how wonderful life can be or will be…. » Peter Sis for Publisher Weekly
