Description
In this uproarious froggy version of the popular fairy tale, King Long Shanks is swindled by two shrewd tailors--they convince him their magic cloth is visible only to honest and loyal subjects. Taken in by the tailors’ trickery, King Long Shanks marches proudly in a parade wearing nothing but his bare green skin! It takes a young tadpole with a mind of his own to utter the truth that everyone else is afraid to speak.
