Little Prince Chapters 3-4

Storyboard Text

  • The first time he saw my airplane, for instance, he asked me:
  • That is not an object. It flies. It is an airplane. It is my airplane.
  • Yes
  • Oh! That is funny!
  • What! You dropped down from the sky?
  • What is that object?
  • And the little prince broke into a lovely peal of laughter. Then he added:
  • Do you come from another planet?
  • . . .
  • So you, too, come from the sky! Which is your planet?
  • And he sank into a reverie, which lasted a long time. Then, taking my sheep out of his pocket,
  • My little man, where do you come from? What is this 'where I live,' of which you speak?
  • The thing that is so good about the box you have given me is that at night he can use it as his house
  • And I was proud to have him learn that I could fly.He cried out, then:
  • But the little prince seemed shocked by this offer:
  • That is so. And if you are good I will give you a string, too, so that you can tie him during the day, and apost to tie him to.
  • .
  • My friend broke into another peal of laughter:
  • But if you don't tie him, he will wander off somewhere, and get lost
  • he buriedhimself in the contemplation of his treasure. You can imagine how my curiosity was aroused by this half-confidence about the "other planets." I made agreat effort, therefore, to find out more on this subject.
  • And, with perhaps a hint of sadness, he added:
  • "Tie him! What a queer idea
  • Anywhere. Straight ahead of him
  • But where do you think he would go?
  • Straight ahead of him, nobody can go very far . . .
  • That doesn't matter. Where I live, everything is so small!
