This book is about an Emperor who is rich and pays a lot of money for clothes that do not exist. How is the emperor tricked out of his money? Why doesn't anyone tell him the truth? A story about being responsible.
Jodi Welsh
It is an exact match of the original story. I guess when the fractured tale matches this well, teachers could use it as a springboard for writing a similar tale. There were no surprises. Not one of my favorites.
Brittany Lockard
Teaches a very important lesson that you shouldn't believe everything that someone tells you and you should make decisions for yourself. Also, this book talks about greed and not wanting the best and newest thing.
Perlman retells the classic tale with humor and penguins. This book has been around a while and still delights children!
Jennifer Tarr
