Dessine-Moi Un Mouton

 Daughter usually brings me yarn home to thank me for kitty sitting while she is away. This time she brought me a new little friend. Two, in fact.

“All grown-ups were once children... but only few of them remember it.” 
― Antoine de Saint-ExupéryThe Little Prince

 This Little Prince comes with the fox. The fox is my favorite part of the book.

“So the little prince tamed the fox. And when the hour of his departure drew near--

Ah," said the fox, "I shall cry."

It is your own fault," said the little prince. "I never wished you any sort of harm; but you wanted me to tame you . . ."

Yes, that is so," said the fox.

But now you are going to cry!" said the little prince.

Yes, that is so," said the fox.

Then it has done you no good at all!"

It has done me good," said the fox, "because of the color of the wheat fields.”

Now my old Little Prince has a new buddy and a pet. Cool. You can't have enough Little Princes.

"And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” 
― Antoine de Saint-ExupéryThe Little Prince

See? I got them all and in lots of different languages.

"The proof that the little prince existed is that he was charming, that he laughed, and that he was looking for a sheep. If anybody wants a sheep, that is a proof that he exists.” 
― Antoine de Saint-ExupéryThe Little Prince

I want a sheep. Don't you?


  1. I should reread the Little Prince. I used to love it.
    Somehow it made me sad with its truth....

  2. I'm sure you know...but there is a Little Prince movie coming out this year!

    1. Yes, I do know. I hope it's better than the other awful versions.

  3. I am enchanted all over again! What a nice addition to your collection! Just heart-warming!
