The Little Prince and His Magic Wandby Jillian M. Curtis, Janet Mattison-Prise (Illustrator)
A Quote from the author - Do I like being a writer? Yes, I love it. Words are the magic I use to create memories through the marks on a page. To see things from different perspectives. To express the experiences and lessons of real life through the medium of fantasy and delight. I feel I am lucky to understand something of the power of emotions - you know, they are unique in the universe and my own dream is that our children will never lose them. If The Spirit of the Forest can make a child smile, or a parent curl up beside their son or daughter to read, then that's love, and I thank my little prince and his angel for sharing some with us.
What readers are saying about "The Little Prince" -
"When I read this book to my second grade class, they were hanging on every word and couldn't wait to hear what was going to happen next."
-Julie Conover"I just read this book and it is wonderful. It's a story of great messages-having dreams, courage and making the most of your inner strength-but it also has enough action and literal story to keep kids' interest. The illustrations are beautiful and really complement the story-both the literal action and the gently mystical tone of the writing."
"There is double magic going on here-the magic in the story but also the special magic the author has used to create such a beautiful compelling book. An enthusiastic thumbs up!"
"A delightful fable for children of all ages . Jillian M Curtis brings the genre of simple, yet melodious, story telling from the ancient oral traditions up to date in a way that both charms and delicately etches a wry smile on even the most jaded of palates. Concisely penned , and never patronising in tone,Curtis weaves a captivating charm."
Steven Mills, England
"Recently I was asked by our pre-school program to be a guest reader to a group of about 15 little ones. Thank you for the wonderful story! Though I read three stories to the group, they were MOST enthralled by "The Little Prince". The book is beautifully illustrated and tells a most uplifting story, which challenges little ones to be the best person they can be! It is a most intriguing story and it is destined to become a classic. I certainly hope you have more stories on the way."
