The little prince

Summary:
At the beginning of the book the narrator, an airplane pilot, crashes into the Sahara Desert. The impact of the crash badly damages the airplane and the pilot is left with barely and food or water. The pilot is getting worried about the bad situation he is in. A little prince approaches him and asks him to draw a sheep for him. The Pilot agrees and him and the little prince become friends. The little prince tells the pilot that he comes from an asteroid in outer space called asteroid 325. One day, on the little princes planet, a sprout arose from the ground. The sprout turned into a rose and the little price took very good care of it. One day, the little prince caught the rose lying to him, so he decided to leave. He wanted to discover all the other planets in the universe, so he set off. On the first six planets the little prince visits, he meets a king, a vain man, a drunkard, a businessman, a lamplighter, and a geographer. They all live alone, and are overly consumed by their jobs. The prince meets each one, and discovers that he does not think much of the adults he visits, and doesn't learn anything from them, except from the geographer. The geographer tells him that flowers do not last forever and he then begins to miss his rose he left behind. The prince asks the pilot to draw a mussel on the sheep that he drew, so the sheep would not eat his beautiful rose. The pilot says no because he thinks it is silly. The last planet the little prince visits is earth, where he lands in the Sahara Desert. At first, he could not find anyone or anything except a snake. The snake tells him that if he wishes, he can send him back to the heavens with one bite. The prince says no, and continues to explore earth. Eventually, the little prince finds a rose garden, which surprises and depresses him. His rose on his planet had told him that she was the only one of her kind. Earlier on one of the planets, the little prince met a fox. The fox taught him that the important things in life are visible only to the heart, that his time away from the rose makes the rose more special to him, and that love makes a person responsible for the beings that one loves. Now it is the pilots 8th day stranded in the desert, and the 8th day the prince has been gone from his home. The prince and the pilot go off to try and find water well. They find one, and are taught a lesson that too many people do not see what is truly important in life. The little prince's mind is set on going back to his planet to go see his rose, so he makes plans with the snake so he can head back to his planet. On the one-year anniversary of the prince arriving to earth, the pilot gets his plane fixed. The little prince and the pilot walk sadly to the place where the little prince first landed. They are greeted by the snake that bites the prince, who falls to the sand. The pilot stays in the desert over night with plans to leave in the morning. When the pilot wakes, he notices the little prince's body is gone and has moved back to his planet. This gives comfort to the pilot, who deploys to leave for home.
