The Little Snake

Kennedy, A. L. More by this author...£6.99

A magical, charming and deeply moving fable about the journey we all take through life, how we live in this world, and how we leave it.

This is the story of Mary, a young girl born in a beautiful city full of rose gardens and fluttering kites. When she is still very small, Mary meets Lanmo, a shining golden snake, who becomes her very best friend. The snake visits Mary many times, he sees her grow and her city change, as bombs drop and war creeps in. Lanmo wonders, can having a friend possibly be worth the pain of knowing you will lose them?

This is THE PERFECT book for anyone who loves The Litte Prince. - Mairi
