A pilot crashes in the Sahara desert. One day he meets a little boy who says he comes from another planet. The planet is very small and has tiny volcanoes that the boy takes care of, and trees he has to dig up. Then he finds a rose growing on his planet and he tries to meet her every demand because he loves her. The boy decides to see the rest of the universe and sees various other small, one-man planets like his. He eventually finds Earth where he journeyed awhile, meeting roses, a fox, a snake, and people, before coming upon the narrator.

The book has been adapted in various forms of media including a film adaptation being released in 2015.
