"Piccolo Principe, il viaggio continua" è il sequel-tributo del racconto-capolavoro di Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. La narrazione, infatti, parte proprio dal punto in cui il primo racconto si era interrotto. In questa nuova storia, il Principino esplorerà uno spazio fantastico, caratterizzato da luoghi e personaggi inverosimili e sorprendenti: la navicella Bumpuff, la casa con le gambe, i cappelli parlanti; oltre a quelli vecchi, sempre più sorprendenti, alla luce di un nuovo sorprendente intreccio.
