You will be a king. What will Olivia be then? It was a delightfully witty, heart-warming, and romantic fairytale come to life!
Plot[ edit ] The narrator begins with a discussion on the nature of grown-ups and their inability to perceive, especially important things. As a test to determine if a grown-up is enlightened and like a child, he shows them a picture he drew at age 6 of a snake which has eaten an elephant.
The grown-ups always reply that the picture is of a hat, and so he knows to talk of "reasonable" things to them, rather than fanciful. The narrator becomes a pilotand, one day, his plane crashes in the Saharafar from civilization.
He has 8 days of water supply and must fix his airplane to be saved. In the middle of the desert, the narrator is unexpectedly greeted by a young boy who is nicknamed as "the little prince".
The prince has golden hair, a lovable laugh, and will repeat questions until they are answered. Upon encountering the narrator, the little prince asks him to draw a sheep.
The narrator first shows him his old picture of the elephant inside the snake, which, to the narrator's surprise, the prince interprets correctly. After three failed attempts at drawing a sheep, the frustrated narrator simply draws a box, claiming that the sheep the prince wants is inside the box.
Again, to the narrator's surprise, the prince exclaims that this is exactly the drawing he wanted. Over the course of eight days stranded in the desert, while the narrator attempts to repair his plane, the little prince recounts the story of his life.
The prince begins by describing life on his tiny home planet: The asteroid's most prominent features are three minuscule volcanoes two active, and one dormant or extinct as well as a variety of plants.
The prince describes spending his earlier days cleaning the volcanoes and weeding unwanted seeds and sprigs that infest his planet's soil; in particular, pulling out baobab trees that are constantly on the verge of overrunning the surface.
If the baobabs are not rooted out the moment they are recognized, it may be put off until it is too late and the tree has grown too large to remove, its roots having a catastrophic effect on the tiny planet. The prince wants a sheep to eat the undesirable plants, but worries it will also eat plants with thorns.
The prince tells of his love for a vain and silly rose that began growing on the asteroid's surface some time ago.
The rose is given to pretension, exaggerating ailments to gain attention and have the prince care for her. The prince says he nourished the rose and attended her, making a screen or glass globe to protect her from the cold wind, watering her, and keeping off the caterpillars. Although the prince fell in love with the rose, he also began to feel that she was taking advantage of him and he resolved to leave the planet to explore the rest of the universe.
Upon their goodbyes, the rose is serious and apologizes that she failed to show she loved him and that they'd both been silly. She wishes him well and turns down his desire to leave her in the glass globe, saying she will protect herself.
The prince laments that he did not understand how to love his rose while he was with her and should have listened to her kind actions, rather than her vain words. The prince has since visited six other planetseach of which was inhabited by a single, irrational, narrow-minded adult, each meant to critique an element of society.
A king with no subjects, who only issues orders that can be followed, such as commanding the sun to set at sunset.
A narcissistic man who only wants the praise which comes from admiration and being the most-admirable person on his otherwise uninhabited planet.
A drunkard who drinks to forget the shame of drinking. A businessman who is blind to the beauty of the stars and instead endlessly counts and catalogs them in order to "own" them all critiquing materialism A lamplighter on a planet so small, a full day lasts a minute.
He wastes his life blindly following orders to extinguish and relight the lamppost every 30 seconds to correspond with his planet's day and night.
An elderly geographer who has never been anywhere, or seen any of the things he records, providing a caricature of specialization in the contemporary world.
It is the geographer who tells the prince that his rose is an ephemeral being, which are not recorded, and recommends that the prince next visit the planet Earth. The visit to Earth begins with a deeply pessimistic appraisal of humanity.
The six absurd people the prince encountered earlier comprise, according to the narrator, just about the entire adult world. On earth there were " kings. He then met a yellow snake that claimed to have the power to return him to his home, if he ever wished to return.
The prince next met a desert flower, who told him that she had only seen a handful of men in this part of the world and that they had no roots, letting the wind blow them around and living hard lives.
After climbing the highest mountain he had ever seen, the prince hoped to see the whole of Earth, thus finding the people; however, he saw only the enormous, desolate landscape.
When the prince called out, his echo answered him, which he interpreted as the voice of a boring person who only repeats what another says.
The prince encountered a whole row of rosebushes, becoming downcast at having once thought that his own rose was unique and that she had lied. He began to feel that he was not a great prince at all, as his planet contained only three tiny volcanoes and a flower that he now thought of as common.
He lay down on the grass and wept, until a fox came along.The Little Prince (French: Le Petit Prince; French pronunciation: [lə pəti pʁɛ̃s]), first published in April , is a novella, the most famous work of French aristocrat, writer, poet, and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry..
