The Empty Pot has sold more than 300,000 copies in hardcover and paperback. Now, in a big book format ideal for Demi’s lavish art, this classic favorite can be shared with a whole group of children at once!

This is a story about a boy who loves flowers but is unable to grow one in the emperor’s contest. Demi’s exquisite art and beautifully simple text show how Ping’s seeming failure is turned around in this satisfying tale of honesty rewarded.

“A beautifully crafted book that will be enjoyed as much for the richness
of its illustrations as the simplicity of its story.”—School Library Journal

Praise for The Empty Pot

"When the Chinese Emperor announces an unusual test to choose an heir--the child who raises the best flowers from a seed given by the Emperor will be his successor--Ping, unaccountably, is unable to get his seed to sprout. . . . A lovely story, well told and most attractively presented."--Kirkus Reviews, pointer

"A beautifully crafted book that will be enjoyed as much for the richness of its illustrations as the simplicity of its story."--School Library Journal
