Recently, I have grown concerned that St. Nick will be taking me up on my word this season to keep it simple, and I will not find a lovely cashmere turtleneck under the tree. Appropriately the favorite book around the house is a beautiful retelling of The Emperor's New Clothes. This graphic novel is a treat. The story is clear and compelling and the illustrations by, Jeffrey Stewart Timmins are amazing. He nails the emperor and the crooks spot on. In fact, there is a whole series of wonderful fairy tales retold in graphic novel format from Rapunzel to Paul Bunyan. We cannot get enough. Check out these books published by Capstone.
