the little prince is back
This book speaks of a mystery, of a long day in the desert, of a man who has not ceased to be a child, of a drawing that perhaps was much more, of what our hearts hide and we do not let show, of friendship, of hope, of the strange adventure that is life and our passage through it... Delve into its pages and discover that anything can be real if you believe in it.

A book lasts what remains in memory...
A few words from Gonzalo Moure about The Little Prince is back
"A book lasts what remains in memory, and weighs what occupies in the heart. The latest book by María Jesús Alvarado, The Little Prince is back, can be read in thirty minutes, and it remains in the memory and in the heart forever. It will make lovers of Saint-Exupéry's original book even more passionate, because they always want (we want) more. It will make desert lovers even more passionate, because it takes place in Western Sahara, where Saint-Exupéry wrote the book when his plane broke down. I have always thought that the French writer achieved his masterpiece when he did not try anything, when he wrote (and drew) directly from life to heart, without any calculation. The same has happened to María Jesús, who when she was living it did not even realize realized how important what he was experiencing was. One night under the stars, next to a man who lived alone in the desert "waiting for a friend". Only years later, when that meeting came back to him again and again, did he realize that memory was asking him to "write it down." And so it did at last, breaking down the barrier between what is real and what we feel is real. I will not reveal more. I will only say that it is amazing, that it is one of the books that have most impressed me in my entire life. And knowing, being a friend of María Jesús (bubishera too), doesn't affect me to say it, just as it wouldn't have affected me otherwise: I didn't know Sain-Exupéry either, what else would I want, and I feel as if the two were the same book, the same miracle of words that can light a fire in your heart: the mystery of literature."
