Synopsis

The Emperor's New Clothes by Barrie Wade

The emperor is very vain, and he loves dressing himself in fine clothes. So he is easily duped when two swindlers arrive in town professing that they can make him the finest suit ever made - a suit so smart that it can only be seen by clever people! A beautifully illustrated retelling of this favourite traditional story. Must Know Stories includes favourite tales, celebrating the diversity of our literary heritage. Level 2 stories are told in chapters in under 1000 words.
