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.

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.
