Teaser Tuesday: The Little Prince

Teaser Tuesday is a fun meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.  All you have to do is open your current read to a random page and provide two teaser sentences from that page.  Be sure not to give away any spoilers and include the name of the book and author so others know what you are reading.

Mine for this week is from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery:

When you are trying to be witty, you are apt to sometimes wander from the truth.  I have not been altogether honest in describing the lamplighters.  p. 57

  16. Fantastic teaser! I have loved this book since I first read it in 10th grade french. It's been years since I read the entire book again and your teaser reminds me why I should! I think The Little Prince is one of those books I always want to see sitting on my shelf. Guess I better get on that! lol

    Thank you! Enjoy!
