"The Emperor's New Clothes" Summary

Read the summary of "All Summer in a Day" below. Then on the document below, write a summary of "The Emperor's New Clothes." Use the summary of "All Summer in a Day" as a model.

The short story "All Summer in a Day" by Ray Bradbury is about a girl named Margot who lived on Venus where she was waiting for the sun to appear for the first time in seven years. Margot’s classmates, all of who were born on Venus, did not remember seeing the sun because they were only two years old when the sun last appeared. Margot, however, moved to Venus from Earth when she was four, so she remembered the sun, and she desperately waited for the opportunity to see it again. Because of this, the children were jealous and annoyed by Margot, so before the sun appeared, they locked Margot in a closet. When the sun came out, the children ran around with excitement and joy for two hours. Then it began to rain again, and after the sun disappeared behind the clouds the children remembered that they had left Margot in the closet. Disappointed in themselves, they went to the closet and let Margot out.
