The Emperor's New ClothesBook - 2004
In this version of Andersen's tale the emperor loves shopping and new clothes, but he is still tricked by two rascals. Everyone agrees that the emperor is charming, clever, and works very hard ... at shopping! Showing off his expensive clothes is all he cares about. So one day, a pair of swindlers decides to profit from the emperor's vanity. They offer to make him a splendid suit cut from a magical cloth that cannot be seen by anyone who is lazy or stupid. Who will be brave enough to tell the emperor that he's really wearing nothing at all? Illustrations as zany and entertaining as the emperor himself enhance this ageless tale. John A. Rowe's eccentric and vivid interpretation of the Hans Christian Andersen story puts new "garb" on an old favorite.
