The Little Prince is Back

This book talks about a mystery, of a long day in the desert, of a man who has not stopped being a child, of a drawing that perhaps was much more, of what our heart hides and what we do not allow to come out, of friendship, of hope, of the strange adventure that is life and our journey through it... Dive into its pages and discover that anything can become 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 for as long as it remains in the remains in the memory, and weighs what occupies in the heart. The latest book by María Jesús Alvarado, The Little Prince is Back, can be read within 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 about it because they always want (we want) more. It will also make more passionate, if possible, those wo love the desert 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 was not aiming for anything, when he wrote (and drew) directly from life to heart, without any calculation. The same happened to María Jesús, who when she was living it, did not even realize how important what she 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 reveal no 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 that knowing, being a friend of María Jesús (bubishera too), doesn't influence me in saying so, just as it wouldn't have influenced me if it was the opposite: I didn't know Sain-Exupéry either, I wished, 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."

that proposes a spiritual journey to the heart of the Sahara..."
