Book Hunters in Brief #117: The Little Prince

Book Hunters planned this post several weeks ago to coincide with the release of the movie adaptation of The Little Prince. Then, scarcely a week before it was due to hit the theaters, Paramount dropped it like it was something slimy. Evidently, Netflix is less queasy about such things because they picked it up and plan to release it...at some point.

Until then, try some of these specially selected reads.

The Boy Who Climbed into the Moon by David Almond

Lowriders in Space by Cathy Camper

Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce

The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman

The Secret of Platform 13 by Eva Ibbotson

The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
