Maybe it's Asteroid B-612
Edits: found name of asteroid. Then fixed typo.
I don't care if this has either been said 1000 times since this was posted or if we've moved on entirely, but in my post-coma ketchup I saw this and couldn't help but blind post my 2 cents...
2 cents: I love this book! I used to have a VHS reading of this when I was a kid1
with the pictures from the book and I loved it. Then I moved recently and stumbled across the actual book in my packing/unpacking process and thought: "Hey, I used to like this as a kid, I'll read the book for the sake of nostalgia!" Then I read it and thought "Wow, my past self didn't get any
of the important messages in this book, this is seriously awesome stuff!And to think I just thought it was a cool story." So all my life I lived under the impression that it was a little kids book, not realizing it was actually worth reading!Now I can honestly say that, despite being somewhat simple in both plot and language2
compared to typical "good" books, this is easily one of my favorite. I'm not one to get choked up because of books/movies, but I legitimately came this
close to shedding a few tears when I read the chapter with the fox. [/confession]
1Very young kid relatively speaking. Like maybe in the preschool age range +/-
2At least I got that impression in English, I don't know about the original French to be honest.
Still blitzing away and will be for some time.
