The Little Prince PDF – Plot Summary

The narrator begins with a discussion on the nature of grown-ups and their inability to perceive “important things”. As a test to determine if a grown-up is as enlightened as a child, he shows them a picture depicting a snake that has eaten an elephant.

The grown-ups always reply that the picture depicts a hat, and so he knows to only talk of “reasonable” things to them, rather than the fanciful. The narrator becomes an aircraft pilot, and one day, his plane crashes in the Sahara, far from civilization.

The narrator has an eight-day supply of water and must fix his airplane. Here, he is unexpectedly greeted by a young boy nicknamed “the little prince.” The prince has golden hair, and a loveable laugh, and will repeat questions until they are answered.

The prince asks the narrator to draw a sheep. The narrator first shows him the picture of the elephant inside the snake, which, to the narrator’s surprise, the prince interprets correctly. After three failed attempts at drawing a sheep, the frustrated narrator draws a simple crate, claiming the sheep is inside.

The prince exclaims that this was exactly the drawing he wanted. Over the course of eight days in the desert, while the narrator attempts to repair his plane, the prince recounts his life story. He begins describing his tiny home planet: in effect, a house-sized asteroid known as “B 612” on Earth.

The asteroid’s most prominent features are three minuscule volcanoes (two actives, and one dormant or extinct) and a variety of plants. The prince describes his earlier days cleaning the volcanoes and weeding unwanted seeds and sprigs that infest his planet’s soil; in particular, pulling out baobab trees that are constantly on the verge of overrunning the surface.

If the baobabs are not rooted out the moment they are recognized, its roots can have a catastrophic effect on the tiny planet. Therefore, the prince wants a sheep to eat the undesirable plants, but worries it will also eat plants with thorns. The prince tells of his love for a vain and silly rose that began growing on the asteroid’s surface some time ago.

The rose is given to pretension, exaggerating ailments to gain attention and have the prince care for her. The prince says he nourished the rose and tended to her, making a screen and glass globe to protect her from the cold and wind, watering her, and keeping off the caterpillars.

Although the prince fell in love with the rose, he also began to feel that she was taking advantage of him, and he resolved to leave the planet to explore the rest of the universe. Upon their goodbyes, the rose is serious and apologizes that she failed to show she loved him, saying that they had both been silly.

She wishes him well and turns down his desire to leave her in the glass globe, saying she will protect herself. The prince laments that he did not understand how to love his rose while he was with her and should have listened to her kind actions, rather than her vain words.

The prince has since visited six other planets, each of which was inhabited by a single, irrational, narrow-minded adult, each meant to critique an element of society. They include:

  • A king with no subjects, who only issues orders that can be followed, such as commanding the sun to set at sunset.
  • A narcissistic man who only wants the praise which comes from admiration and being the most-admirable person on his otherwise uninhabited planet.
  • A drunkard who drinks to forget the shame of drinking.
  • A businessman who is blind to the beauty of the stars and instead endlessly counts and catalogs them in order to “own” them all (critiquing materialism).
  • A lamplighter on a planet so small, a full day lasts a minute. He wastes his life blindly following orders to extinguish and relight the lamp-post every 30 seconds to correspond with his planet’s day and night.
  • An elderly geographer who has never been anywhere, or seen any of the things he records, provides a caricature of specialization in the contemporary world.

It is the geographer who tells the prince that his rose is an ephemeral being, which is not recorded, and recommends that the prince next visit the planet Earth. The visit to Earth begins with a deeply pessimistic appraisal of humanity. The six absurd people the prince encountered earlier comprise, according to the narrator, just about the entire adult world. On earth there were:
