'Le Petit Prince'  
'Le Petit Prince'
Answer of the Day
What is the name of the tiny planet in the book 'The Little Prince'? The planet — or asteroid — is named B-612; it had reportedly once been seen through a telescope by a Turkish astronomer. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the aviator and author of Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince), was born on this date in 1900. Saint-Exupéry combined his love of flight with his love of writing to compose the tale of an aviator who meets the diminutive ruler of the smallest planet in the solar system. One of literature's most famous allegories about the importance of innocence and love, Le Petit Prince was written in the 1940s, during World War II. Saint-Exupéry had fled from France to New York. His yearning for a more idyllic time and for his home is evident in the book.
"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye." Antoine de Saint-Exupery
