The Little Prince 19: The Planet of the Cublix

By Diane Morel
Illustrated by Élyum Studio

The new adventures based on the masterpiece by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

The Little Prince and Fox travel to the rocky Planet of the Cublix and learn that an angry blacksmith has covered the planet with a heavy, smothering fog by making many padlocks in his forge every day. He makes the padlocks because he blames the Cublix for stealing his jewels, though the Cublix did not steal them. The Little Prince must save the Cublix by proving their innocence.

  • Beloved author, name recognition.
  • Created with respect for the original.
  • Appealing reimagining of the character in a popular contemporary style with crossover appeal to young manga readers (cf. Avatar: The Last Airbender).
