The Empty Pot is Demis beloved picture book about an honest schoolboy A long time ago in China there was a boy named Ping who loved flowers. Anything he planted burst into bloom. The Emperor loved flowers too. When it was time to choose an heir, he gave a flower seed to each child in the kingdom. Whoever can show me their best in a years time, he proclaimed, shall succeed me to the throne! Ping plants his seed and tends it every day. But month after month passes, and nothing grows. When spring comes, Ping must go to the Emperor with nothing but an empty pot. Demis exquisite art and beautifully simple text show how Pings embarrassing failure is turned triumphant in this satisfying tale of honesty rewarded. An IRACBC Childrens Choice. An American Bookseller Pick of the Lists.
