The Little Girl Who Made God Laugh by Preciada Azancot

An entire generation has lived enamoured of The Little Prince written by Antoine de Saint Exupéry and continues to dream about him. And now, taking over the torch – since she was born almost when he disappeared into the sky – the author of this short novel for children of all ages – especially the age of grandparents – arrives to bring us The Little Girl Who Made God Laugh. A great admirer and lover of the Little Prince, she has created a Little Princess for him, so that he never has to leave our world again.

Preciada Azancot, renowned as the creator of MAT (Metamodel of Transformational Analysis), whose books are available from the same Publishers, has made the Little Prince’s dream for this world a reality: finding the harmony, clarity, corporality, metamorphosis, soul and spirit, lost on this planet.

The story tells how a little girl, fallen from the kingdom of the angels, brings the laws of heaven to this earth and searches for her little prince, her twin soul, in order to build with him that paradise for two called a couple.

To do this, she seeks him in the desert, then in Paris, then in New York, then in Peking, then in Benares, then in Rome, finding him at last, at the end of the tale, where she least expects it.

While she seeks her loved one, the girl gives each capital and its inhabitants the keys she brought from Paradise.

From the stars, The Little Prince provided the elements that man has to supply to make this world better. In a century illuminated by hope in womanhood, The Little Girl provides the keys that woman has to supply, so that together and united they may return, without having to die, to the Garden of Eden.

A story that is moving, entertaining, educational and above all takes us back to the origins and essences that all angels share, enriching our lives.

A wonderful and wise book for all ages. Continue reading

As the tied-up group watches helplessly on, they realize the people drawn to it are only the start of the nightmare.
