Description

This much-loved Hans Christian Andersen classic is repopulated with a cast of penguins, and the Emperor is the best dressed of them all. When two scoundrels convince him that they can make him a suit of magic cloth, it’s not just the Emperor’s vanity that is showing when he wears it in the grand parade for all to see! Recommended reading ages 4 - 8

About the author

Janet Perlman lives in Montreal and is a writer and illustrator of funny children’s books and a director of funny animated films. Her work has received international acclaim, including an Oscar® nomination and many festival grand prizes.As a child Janet wanted to be a geologist or a stewardess. Her first job consisted of putting scented plastic roses into plastic bags. None of this portended a career in books and film, but as an art student, she found her passion for telling stories through her drawings. Janet now works in her home studio, where she creates most of her artwork in the computer. The Emperor Penguin’s New Clothes is one of a trilogy of penguinized retellings of fairy tales, which include Cinderella Penguin, and The Penguin and the Pea. Two of her books are based on animated films she made at the National Film Board of Canada: Cinderella Penguin (The Tender Tale of Cinderella Penguin) and The Delicious Bug (Dinner For Two).
