Synopsis

The Emperor's New Clothes by Diane Namm

This title comes from the incredibly popular Silver Penny series. Children will love this retelling of the classic tale of a vain and foolish emperor. It is suitable for children aged 3 to 6. When two tricksters tell a vain emperor that they can sew him the most beautiful suit of clothes ever created he's delighted, because these gorgeous garments will also be invisible to fools. But it turns out the emperor may be the biggest fool of all! Only a child has the courage to speak the truth.
