The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
When he meets the Little Prince in his semi-autobiographical fairy tale, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has crashed his plane in the desert. Both of them are stranded, and the Little Prince describes how he lives on a different planet. He longs to get back to it because he has a rose there that he loves very much. In the end, the Little Prince allows a venomous snake to bite his ankle and falls down, seemingly dead. He assures his friend beforehand, though, that appearances deceive and he will in fact be reborn and on his way home.
