"The splendor of storytelling is one story always leads to another story. Some part of a tale may trigger a past experience in the mind of the reader or listener. Another item may light the spark of an entirely new variation on the same narrative. Each of us are filled with stories, a reflection of our daily circumstances and the customs and cultures in which we live.

Elements from and references to fairy tales, a rock solid foundation, are found throughout other forms of literature. The Chinese Emperor's New Clothes (Abrams Books for Young Readers, December 26, 2017) written by Ying Chang Compestine with illustrations by David Roberts offers a captivating new look at Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale, The Emperor's New Clothes. Ingenuity can come at any age.

My full recommendation:
