Description

This enthralling modern fairy tale from Caldecott and Newbery Honor winner Tomie dePaola and debut illustrator Doug Salati celebrates the greatest power of all: love.

In a small kingdom along an ancient road, a bell rings out. The beloved king has died, leaving his magnificent and powerful Imperial Robe to his heir, the young prince.

But when the prince's jealous older half-brother steals the Imperial Robe, slashing it to bits, the prince can no longer rule--and the small kingdom is in great danger. Now the young prince must find another source of power and of strength--and he finds it in a surprising place.
