An initiatory tale for both adults and children
In a distant kingdom, a young prince suffers a terrible fate: his heart, encased in a layer of glass, can neither feel nor love. Only the fire of passionate love will melt away the glass and free his heart. But no woman stirs this love within him. He then decides to set off and travel the world, in search of the one who will deliver him from this curse. Littered with countless obstacles, his quest leads him to reflect on the meaning of life, but also to discover the great secret that looms over his birth. With this initiatory tale including with sixteen colour illustrations by Alexis Chabert, Frédéric Lenoir examines essential questions such as death, hope, sadness, acceptance, the renewal of or search for oneself. The book can be read one many levels, which makes it accessible to a young audience. Through this book, children and adults who have preserved their childlike soul will learn that life’s difficulties can also open up our hearts rather than confining us to misery, we love even more intensely when our heart has been broken and grown through pain. A philosopher and humanist, Frédéric Lenoir here provides us with a message which is both simple and profound, and which could change our life.
