A pilot forced to crash land in the Sahara desert encounters a little prince who is visiting the earth from his own small planet with its three volcanoes and a beautiful flower. Through this meeting, the aviator comes to discover many of life's universal truths which illuminate the human condition with all its foibles, cunning end eccentricities. This wonderful and remarkable book will enchant both children and adults alike. It is a strange parable for all ages, championing the beauty and wisdom of childhood which fades when one becomes 'a grown up.'
