I reread Le Petit Prince a month or two ago, for the first time in decades. I’d forgotten how completely, quietly charming that book is.

Also, while browsing through Amazon, I see that they’ve finally started translating the Le petit Nicolas series into English. An excellent series indeed; perhaps not in the “timeless classic” status as Le Petit Prince, but I reread it a lot more often; yay for kids. Apparently, some posthumous stories in the series have come out in France; I’ll have to think about getting them.

(Not that there aren’t good stories in English about kids and school: Down with Skool!. Le petit Nicolas is a bit broader, though.)
