    2. Someone (Mom, perhaps) gave this book to me many years ago. At the time I was under the impression that the Emperor's New Clothes was my favorite fairy tale. Since my name is Bob, this seemed like a good fit, I suppose.It's a decent version of the tale, although there is more after the "reveal" than is necessary. And why the recipes? Just because Deluise fancied himself a cook doesn't mean a children's book needs recipes that don't fit with the book.

    3. When Dom DeLuise died and I read his obituary I learnt that he wrote several childrens books. This is the only one that my library had. It's a reworking of The Emporer's New Clothes. I do like that King Bob's full name is King Discombobulated. But the jokes don't really work if you have to explain them in the text.
