Mr. Bundy gets a brand-new outfit…but he’s the only one in PS 88 that thinks it’s spectacular! In this clever twist on The Emperor’s New Clothes, acclaimed author Stephanie Calmenson turns a beloved fairy tale on its ear with the silly (mis)adventures of Mr. Bundy!


Our Principal’s in His Underwear! 1 Greetings, Mr. B!
Everyone at PS 88 knows that Mr. Bundy is the best principal in town. They also know that he’s the sharpest dresser. That’s why his students don’t want to miss a day of school. They like to see what he’s wearing.

One day, he’ll have on a three-piece suit, with a crisply ironed handkerchief peeking out of his pocket.

The next day, it will be a snazzy plaid jacket, with matching tie and socks.

“Looking good, Mr. B!” his students always say.

Word got around about Mr. Bundy’s clothes, and one day, a man and a woman who said they were tailors called on him.

They handed him their business card.

On one side the card said:

But they were not really tailors. They were tricksters.

“Greetings, Mr. B,” said Ivy. “How would you like to buy an amazing, one-of-a-kind suit? That means no one but you will own it!”

“Thanks, but I don’t think so,” said Mr. Bundy. “I have so many suits already. I really don’t need another.”

“Ah, but this is no ordinary suit,” said Moe. “It has special powers. Very special powers.”
