Once when I was six years old I saw a magnificent picture in a book,called True Stories from Nature, about the primeval forest. It was apicture of a boa constrictor in the act of swallowing an animal...The Little Prince, first published in 1943, is a novella and the mostfamous work of the French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneeringaviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944). Is a poetic tale, withwatercolour illustrations by the author, in which a pilot stranded inthe desert meets a young prince fallen to Earth from a tiny asteroid.The story is philosophical and includes social criticism, remarking on the strangeness of the adult world. It was written during a period when Saint-Exupéry fled to NorthAmerica subsequent to the Fall of France during the Second World War,witnessed first hand by the author and captured in his memoir. Theadult fable, according to one review, is actually "...an allegory ofSaint-Exupéry's own life—his search for childhood certainties andinterior peace, his mysticism, his belief in human courage andbrotherhood, and his deep love for his wife Consuelo but also anallusion to the tortured nature of their relationship."
