We are told here that the two clever thieves sold all the fine silk, gold, and satin in the marketplace. The minister's motivation is clear: One of the clever flip-ups presents the weavers' candles the night before the big procession. Turn down the flap, and the candles have run down very low, and the clock has changed.
One poignant flip-up shows the naked emperor in a mirror. Flip up the flap and we see him in a regal gown.
Another great flap includes both the naked emperor and a child pointing at his nakedness. In this version, the children "could bear it no longer and they all burst out laughing. Here the flap does not reveal fine clothes but an embarrassed emperor. This emperor scurries back to the palace embarrassed.

A band of them shows up in a wagon at a village that seems deserted. As they pitch camp, they are urged to go away, since this village has, after a hard winter, no food. The leader of the band, a dog, then offers to make stone soup.
We see the parsley hidden under a bed when we lift one of the flaps. A key turning point in this version comes when the villagers all put their wood together. Then they have enough.
The dog brings out the stone, previously well wrapped. Soon everybody in the village contributes something, down to one last holdout, who finally yields a large onion. The delicious feast has the village, as we lift up a flap, playing their instruments and dancing. The next day as they break camp, the travelers present the village with the stone, which, they say, works only if they all cook together.

As they get a good distance away from that village, the band's wagon stops and the dog picks up an ordinary stone from the roadside. This sturdy, well-made page pamphlet again has a very good time with this traditional story, as is true of the other two fable pamphlets in this series.
