The Little Prince

Re-read The Little Prince [Le Petit Prince] by Antoine de Saint-Exupery before giving it away. I love the story for its observations about human behaviour. There are several parallels in my life too. E.g. The narrator who gave up drawing at a young age. E.g. The little prince's feelings as he was about to leave his planet.
He believed that he would never want to return. But on this last morning all these familiar tasks* seemed very precious to him.
*Note: The "familiar tasks" refer to cleaning his home planet and putting it in order.
