There are serious reasons to believe that the Little Prince, the main character of our story, came from the asteroid B 612. A Turkish astronomer has seen it only once through his telescope in 1909. At that time he tried to prove his discovery at the International Congress of Astronomy, but nobody believed him because of his exotic attire. Luckily to the good name of the asteroid, a Turkish dictator gave his people an order upon pain of death to dress like Europeans. The astronomer proved his discovery again in 1920, wearing an elegant tailcoat. This time everyone agreed with him.

But our main personage could also be characterised differently: the Little Prince, like we all, came from a small planet, felt lonely and was looking for a friend.
