Big Sister, Little Brother
by Mike Kenny
Based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen
Rita and Archie meet a big-headed Emperor, a foolish chief-minister, an exquisite Empress and a host of courtiers, and in a vast palace, with rooms full of clothes, they weave magic garments. But when everything goes wrong, whose fault is it? Like any brother and sister, they blame each other and can’t even agree on which way to run! Big Sister, Little Brother tells the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes with an unusual twist, and is a funny, fast-paced, heart-warming tale.
