Perhaps “The Little Prince” which — regardless that the title makes it appear as if a book for children — IMO it’s not; it is somewhat complex, especially its ending that would not be grasped by kids. It is about a pilot whose airplane’s engine fails and he finds himself in the Sahara where a little prince appears. I will not reveal much more except to write that the pilot eventually travels to other worlds — instead of Europe and North Africa — each one populated by only one person. Like Coelho’s Santiago, the pilot is searching for something and is surprised at what he finds and learns about life.
