“Dessine-moi un mouton” (Draw me a sheep) -- this is perhaps one of the best known phrases in French literature. These words were spoken by Le Petit Prince, a young boy from outer space (Asteroid B-612 to be exact) who doesn’t understand the narrow-minded behaviour of grown-ups.
I first read Le Petit Prince in the français intensif program I took in high school. It is a beautiful book that every child (and adult!) should read.
I bought this book in English for my little brother for being the “ring bearer” at my wedding. I hope he’ll cherish it as much as I do!
