Friday 30th April 2021 – This week Amber is reading The King’s Birthday Suit by Peter Bently & Claire Powell

King Albert-Horatio-Otto the Third had SO many clothes it was simply absurd … So when two seemingly well-meaning fabric merchants promise to make an outfit of only the very BEST and most special cloth, King Albert-Horatio-Otto the Third simply cannot resist. He MUST have these new clothes! Surely, the unquestionably charitable and not-at-all-suspicious-looking tailors are genuine, and the King won’t end up looking red-cheeked …

This funny and timely retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fable ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ will not only make children laugh, but also encourage them to think and speak up for what they believe.
