While millions know and love Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince, in which a boy from a tiny asteroid planet travels the galaxy in search of friendship, not many know how the book itself came to be. (It didn’t crash into the Sahara desert in a plane, like its narrator did, as some enchanted readers might expect.) At the height of World War II, after France fell to Germany, Saint-Exupery, a pioneering aviator, fled to New York City. Far from home, in a place where he didn’t speak the language, he began to create whimsical watercolor illustrations of snakes speaking in riddles, baobab trees curled around planets, and stars blooming with flowers. These would later turn into one of the best-selling books of all time.
