This is the magic story of ´´The Little Prince´´ told in rhymes for your delight. Enjoy the listening! ´´The Little Prince´´ encourages us to view things from a different way. It teaches us how to look beneath the top layer of a situation and see beyond it. The Little Prince learns how to see things with his heart and to feel things with his emotions, rather than simply with his eyes and head. He does not think his rose is special anymore, because there are more just like her. He learns from the fox that she is special because she is his rose. He has looked after her and only her. She loves him, and only him. This makes her different and unique to him. He has tamed the rose and is now responsible for her. The railway worker tries to explain that adults do not look with their ´´real´´ eyes anymore; they do not have the time to really look around them and see the beauty in the simple things in life like the view from the train. Children have the capability to do this. ´´The Little Prince´´ teaches us that through being so caught up in our wealth and greed, we manage to miss the important things in life. All of our time is taken with counting our wealth that we do not spend our money on those that matter most to us. It also points out that ´´cushions´´ in life such as alcohol only make the problem temporarily better. The issue is inside the person still and needs addressing, the alcohol only masks the problem. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rebecca Meszaros.

When River, Freak, and Fiona discover a rare zucchini-colored crayon between the cushions of a mysterious sofa at their bus stop, they quickly find themselves in the middle of an evil plot to conquer the world! The plot´s mastermind, Edward Disin, is responsible for starting the underground coal seam fire that continually burns just beyond the kids´ backyards, a dastardly cover-up for an intergalactic portal that will soon transport an army of invaders to Earth. Disin´s only weakness is his otherworldly obsession with the zucchini crayon - and he knows the kids have it. But with the help of an eccentric neighbor, an artificial intelligence in the form of a double-six domino, a DNA-analyzing tray, two hot air balloons, and a cat named Mucus, three kids from the middle of nowhere might be able to save the planet. Henry Clark´s dazzling debut middle grade novel is a thoroughly original, unabashedly wacky, and surprisingly affecting story about the importance of intelligence and curiosity in a complacent world. 1.
