Absolutley charming!

The narrator is a pilot forced to land in the desert, where he meets a little prince from outer space. The little prince has come exploring, away from his own very small planet where he looks after three knee-high volcanoes, pulls up baobobs before they take the place over, and lavishes attention on the beautiful, proud flower who finally drove him out with her pettish demands. Through his stories, and the little pearls of wisdom he drops innocently into them, we learn a little bit more about ourselves – and it is sad to see him go when at last his yearning for the beloved flower draws him homeward.

Sigh.

Here’s an Amazon link.
For me, the local library obliged, as usual.
