I remember watching The Little Prince on VHS when I was young. The boa constrictor stuck with me, as well as the adults responses to the picture. It's one of the reasons I may have to grow older, but I refuse to grow up. I'm sure that I've read the book before, but it's been nearly as long as when I watched the movie. Reading this copy I decided that the book and the movie complement each other. Mostly, books tend to be richer than the movies derived from them, simply because they have more details. The fact that the whole book is made up almost completely of details instead of plot means that it translated well to the screen. I love the story, no matter the format, and I have to agree with the prince. Grown-ups are so strange.
