Now an adult himself, the narrator has become a pilot, and, one day, his plane crashes in the Sahara, far from civilization. Here, the narrator is greeted by a young boy whom he refers to as "the little prince". Upon encountering the narrator, the little prince asks him to draw a sheep. The narrator first shows him his old 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 simply draws a box, claiming that there is a sheep inside the box. Again, to the narrator's surprise, the prince exclaims that this is exactly the drawing he wanted. The prince has a strange habit of avoiding directly answering any of the narrator's questions. The prince is described as wearing a scarf and having golden hair and a lovable laugh. Over the course of eight days stranded in the desert, while the narrator attempts to repair his plane, the little prince recounts the story of his life.
