In 1935, a St. Exupéry plane trying to break the flight record between Paris and Saigon crashed in the Sahara Desert and was forced to land.
The same accident inspired the little prince, in which the protagonist, an anonymous pilot, meets a little boy after landing in the desert.
The boy tells the pilot that he comes from a distant constellation and has lived there so long that one day he decides to leave home to explore other constellations.
He also tells the pilot of his beloved rose that his heart is in love with him, compliments other stars, and the fox that met him here on earth.
The pilot and the prince find a well that saves them from thirst, but eventually the little prince informs the pilot of his decision and says he has decided to return to his constellation.
In this chaotic world, there are people who have made their hearts happy.
Those who spend every day to see the red rose, those who every day think of making their flower happy and want to follow the world.

Reading tips about the book
One still does not know where the main source of the Little Prince’s story came from and whether Exupery really met this dream prince.
But the tone of the book is so poetic that its unreality can be ignored. The following are some of the most interesting things about the Little Prince.
The Little Prince’s book holds the record for translations into many languages. This enduring book has been translated into more than three hundred languages of the world, which is the only unholy book that has been translated into so many languages.
Some critics believe that The Little Prince is inspired by one of Hans Christian Anderson’s short stories, The Little Mermaid.
Hans Christian Anderson is one of the most famous writers of children’s fiction with this title. It is believed that when Exupery was hospitalized with post-fall injuries, his friend Annabella read him the story of the little mermaid. Critics say it may have been Exupery who decided to write The Little Prince after hearing the story.
Exupery’s wife, Consuelo, actually inspired the little blossoming flower. Exupery’s main job was piloting and she had to stay away from Consuelo for a long time. In the story, the little prince is far from his throat.
All the pictures in the book were taken by the author himself. Exupery never considered himself a painter, but due to his sensitivity to the little prince, he painted all the pictures in his book himself using watercolors.
Finally, Exupery never saw the publication of The Little Prince in her hometown. The Little Prince was first published in 1943 in French and English in the United States. Due to the political situation during World War II, Exupery could not easily obtain permission to publish his book in France, which is why the book The Little Prince was not published in France until the liberation.
The story of The Little Prince is about a pilot meeting a lovely little creature.
The pilot is the author of Antoine Saint-Exupéry. During one of his trips to Africa, he crashes in sub-Saharan Africa, where he meets the little prince.
The Little Prince’s poetic and romantic story begins where a different plant grows among the grass on Planet B612, which is the Little Prince.
The flower that plays the role of the beloved in this story.
The little prince who falls in love with the rose is on a journey, a journey that reaches the earth in search of a friend.
The little prince travels with the inhabitants of seven asteroids and learns facts about life from people on each planet.
Although Exupery’s lifespan was short and did not exceed forty-four, this brief opportunity led him to leave valuable works such as The Aviator, The Land of Humans, The Letter of a Hostage, and Night Flight.
Exupery was not only a brave pilot, a patriot and a fighter against fascism, but his life experiences as a pilot are reflected in his delicate and imaginative novels and stories.
Beautiful sentences and dialogue of the little prince, the fox and the rose
The little prince said: But you will cry!
“That’s right,” said the fox.
– So it does not work for you.
-Why. The color of wheat fields …
Then he said:
– Go see the flowers again. This will make you realize that your flower is unique in the world. Then come back to say goodbye to me so that I can give you a secret.
The little prince went and saw the flowers again. He told them:
You bear no resemblance to my flower, you are still nothing. No one has domesticated you and you have not domesticated anyone.
My fox was like you. It was a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But I made him my friend and now he is unique in the world.
And the flowers were very ashamed.
The little prince said:
You are beautiful, but you have nothing but beauty. No one dies for you. Of course, the flower sees me as a normal passer-by like you.
But he is the head of all of you, because I just watered him, because I just put him under the bubble, because I just made a shelter for him, because I killed his worms just for him, because he just complained. I have listened to his arrogance or sometimes to his anger and silence. Because he is my flower.

Part of the text of the book
The little prince returned tomorrow.
“It would have been better if you had arrived yesterday,” said the fox. If you come every day at four o’clock in the afternoon, I will be happy little by little from three o’clock onwards, and the more time passes, the more I will feel happy.
At four o’clock I will be worried and excited, and then I will realize the value of happiness. But if you come at an unknown time, my eager heart does not know when to come to greet you … In the end, everything must be ritual.
The little prince asked: What is “religion”?
“This is something forgotten,” said the fox, “something that makes a day different from other days and an hour from hour to hour.” Thus the little prince tamed the fox and as soon as the farewell hour approached the fox said: Oh … I will cry.
The little prince said: It’s your fault. I did not want to hurt your life. You yourself wanted me to tame you …
“That’s right,” said the fox.
The little prince said: In that case, will you cry again?
“Of course,” said the fox.
“But crying will not do you any good,” said the little prince.
“Crying because of the color of the wheat field will be beneficial to me,” said the fox.
