At some time, everyone reads The Little Prince. And most readers take great interest in its exotic story of the solitary heir of Asteroid B-612. "He is a cosmic urchin who leaves his asteroid," writes biographer, Stacy Schiff,

because of a misunderstanding with a troublesome rose; he makes a speedy survey of adult logic in six visits to neighboring asteroids, each [inhabited] by a man more ridiculous than the last; he lands in the Sahara, where he meets the aviator who serves as the book's narrator; and learns a few crucial lessons from a fox before disappearing into the air.1
