The little prince crossed the desert and met with only one flower. It was a flower with three petals, a flower of no account at all.
    “ Good morning,” said the little prince.
    “ Good morning,” said the flower.
    “ Where are the men ? ” the little prince asked, politely.
    The flower had once seen a caravan passing.
    “ Men ? ” she echoed. ” I think there are six or seven of them in existence. I saw them, several years ago. But one never knows where to find them. The wind blows them away. They have no roots, and that makes their life very difficult.”
    “ Goodbye,” said the little prince.
    “ Goodbye,” said the flower.

— hoofdstuk XVIII uit The Little Prince

A pilot forced to land in the Sahara meets a little prince. The wise and enchanting stories the prince tells of his own planet with its three volcanoes and a haughty flower are unforgettable.

A strange and wonderful parable for all ages, with superb illustrations by the author.
