Emperor's New Clothes by Nadine Bernard Westcott, Nadine Bernard Westcott

Once upon a time there was a vain emperor who loved new clothes more than anything. He was the perfect dupe for two sly tricksters' clever plot. Claiming to be able to weave a fabulous cloth that is invisible to all who are stupid or unfit for their jobs, the tricksters promise to create a marvelous set of clothes for the emperor to wear in the great procession. The emperor pays the tricksters handsomely for their work, but he and his subjects are in for a very big surprise!

About the Author

Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children's picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.
