The hero, a little extraterrestrial being, flys away from his own planet, goes around the whole universe, visits several other planets, sees many things and people, and comes to the earth, establishing lasting friendship with I, a being living on the earth. One year later, He says farewell to his friend and goes back to his own planet. This is a tale of intergalactic travel written at the end of 1930s and it is fair to say that it reflects peoples aspiration for space travel. Nevertheless, the writer was an aviation engineer and knew deeply the difficulties of space travel, so the little prince he created would not mount clouds and ride mist like Sun Wukong (Also known as Monkey King). The hero undergoes a long and arduous way back to his planet and almost loses his life. The writer reminded readers here that humans astronaut way was still long.
