Kids will fall sleep before you with The Little Prince, Patapalo and a kissing Princess
Here at Kukuxumusu we tend to get off on just about everything. This year we have created a set of bed clothes and duvet which produce a real somniferous effect. The kids will fall fast asleep well before you do. The stuff comes with drawings of a kissing princess, a naughty pirate Patapalo and a famous aviator who got lost in the desert, better known as The Little Prince. You can buy it clicking here.
This famous story, The Little Prince, was originally written and sketched by Frenchman, Antoine Saint-Exupéry. Just recently, a movie was made of this fairy story and it will have its premiere in Spain very soon. Here is a short trailer.
The Little Prince is one of the biggest-selling books of all time. Many quotes, that tend to toss about inside your head when you are quietly nursing a beer or two, have originated in the pages of that book. Perhaps one of the best-known is that one “The most essential things remain invisible to the eye”, which could be a good tuit to pull out of the bag whenever your imagination gets blocked. And, as the rose appears on our sheets, here is another line for those tearful goodbyes: “it was the time that you spent with your rose that made it such an important thing.”
Saint-Exupéry was a real aficionado of flying. He worked as a Post Office pilot making international deliveries from France. Over the years he had several flying accidents and he narrated some of his adventures in his books. He also took part in The Second World War. And it was during this time, when he was flying a plane to reconnoiter the German defenses in Normandy that he and his plane mysteriously disappeared near Corsica. The writer was just 44 years old at the time.
In 1998, a fisherman from Marseilles found a silver bracelet with his name written on it and soon afterwards parts of the plane that he was flying were found. Some years later, a German pensioner issued a statement admitting that he had been the one who shot down the ill-fated plane of Saint-Exupéry. And that is all we know… for the moment.
