Synopsis

First Fairy Tales: The Emperor's New Clothes by Jan Lewis

This is a traditional story that is retold in rhyme in this chunky padded boardbook. When a couple of tailors offer to make a suit from material so wondrous that only clever people can see it, the vain Emperor hires them - a decision he will regret...Big, bright illustrations and simple rhyming text make this book perfect for reading aloud to small children, or for more confident readers to enjoy by themselves. Youngsters can also have fun counting how many times the happy ginger cat appears in the story. The Emperor is always dressed In gorgeous clothes, the very best. He changes his garb six times a day, And walks about in proud display. Two sneaky weavers come to call, One is short and one is tall. They bow very low and say, Sire, We can make you much grander attire. Is this offer too good to be true? The Emperor will see - and so will you!
