Prince in a Pastry Shop” is a seemingly humorous story about happiness. Because “with happiness there are only troubles,” says the Not-So-Little Prince, and he multiplies the examples of these troubles. His interlocutor is Prickly Pear, the embodiment of carefree, lightheartedness, simple joy of life, but at the same time a lively, intelligent mind that can make the Prince take a back step in his conversation. This philosophical parable about a couple eating cakes in a cafe touch upon fundamental issues that are close to everyone – the elusiveness of happiness, the fact that we are not always able to perceive it, let alone experience it as fully as possible.
