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.
