The boy claims to be a resident of a small planet (# B-612), after his endless journeys have landed on Earth.The Little Prince book recounts the little prince’s “planetary” adventures, telling the stories he witnessed, the faces he met, as well as containing deep philosophical content. far arranged in a very funny way.
