Hello, welcome back to another Book Traveling Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite and least favorite.
This week’s theme is “Yesterday was International Children’s Day!! Choose a book you would read in your childhood if you could go back in time“. I’m going for a book that I own, haven’t read, but think that I should have done so when I was a little kid… but didn’t. That is The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
The original cover is the one that we still see nowadays everywhere. I think it’s one of the most iconic images ever, right?
COVER FROM MY COUNTRY (PORTUGAL) & COVER FROM THE COUNTRY I LIVE IN (SPAIN):
These are some of the Portuguese, Catalan and Spanish covers. There are several editions of this book, but I love all the variations of the original cover.
As I’ve said above, I love the various variations of the original cover, they’re just gorgeous… I especially like the blue ones. Also, the last one is the Chechen edition and I find it beautiful.
LEAST FAVORITE COVER(s):
There are a lot of covers for this book, but these are some of my least favorites, in order of the pictures: Chinese, Persian, 2 covers from Bulgaria, Tatar, Spanish and a French edition. I just hate them all!

The blue one is beautiful 🙂 There are definitely some terrible book covers for this one!
yep. it has been around for long too
I don’t think I’ve heard of it.
I also own this one and haven’t read it yet 😛
I really like original covers in blue too. They are gorgeus
yes they are 😀
You’re right, it’s so iconic and I love the subtle variations. The blue and white one is so beautiful!!
Those last covers are so bad!
🙂 the original design is just beautiful 🙂
I almost picked this one too. I’ve never read it either but I know I really should, I’ve heard it’s such a deep story. That Chechen cover is absolutely stunning! I’d definitely love to own that.
i actually started it a few months ago and only read like 4 pages, lol, oh the shame!
This book is iconic. I’ve seen this one everywhere but I never actually read it too! I hope you could read it soon!
😉 i need to pick it up
