The Little Prince

The Little Prince

by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The Little Prince Chapter 18 Summary

  • Short chapter alert!
  • By the way, in the previous chapter, it was the end of the day, and in this chapter, it’s the beginning of a new day.
  • In this section, the prince meets a new flower – an unimpressive flower with only three petals.
  • The little prince asks her where the men are.
  • This flower has once seen a caravan pass by, so she tells him that there are six or seven men in existence but that they are rootless and go wherever the wind blows, which makes them difficult to find.
