For those who missed the special issue of Lire magazine marking the 60th anniversary of the Little Prince, we offer a drawing by one of the most famous names in the world of French comic strip illustrations: none other than Uderzo, one of the two creators of Astérix the Gaul. In 2009, the famous warrior fuelled by magic potion celebrated his 50th anniversary.

In the drawing, the Little Prince has apparently asked Uderzo to draw him a sheep, but Uderzo seems to have gone over the top. The Little Prince’s planet is covered not in baobabs but in sheep, happily grazing the surface of asteroid B612.
