"Once upon a time there was a little prince who lived on a planet that was scarcely any bigger than himself, and who had need of a sheep . . ."To those who understand life, that would have given a much greater air of truth to my story.This was a cute short story, obviously meant for children; however, I don't feel as if children would be able to understand this on their own. A bit too deep and philosophical for the average kid. Cute illustrations.
