I admit that I foolishly was not aware of the length of Emperors New Clothes having never had the benefit of exposure to it as a child. Thus I thought this was a semi-substantial book and quickly added to my basket barely noticing the £11 price tag. It all arrived relatively quickly in with some other books I bought but I feel this book is an utter scam for the price.

The Emperor's New Clothes, the fairy tale from Hans Christian Andersen. Many years ago, there was an Emperor, who was so excessively fond of new clothes, that he spent all his money in dress. He did not trouble himself in the least about his soldiers; nor did he care to go either to the theatre or the chase, except for the opportunities then afforded him for displaying his new clothes. He had a different suit for each hour of the day; and as of any other king or emperor, one is accustomed to say, "he is sitting in council," it was always said of him, "The Emperor is sitting in his wardrobe.

The Emperor's New Clothes" (Danish: Kejserens nye klæder) is a short tale written by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, about two weavers who promise an emperor a new suit of clothes that they say is invisible to those who are unfit for their positions, stupid, or incompetent – while in reality, they make no clothes at all, making everyone believe the clothes are invisible to them.

8 the little mermaid. 9 the emperor’s new clothes. 10 the magic galoshes. That could have been the opening of a fairy tale or a description of Hans Christian Andersen setting out from his native Odense to seek his fortune in Copenhagen. Did he see witches, fairy godmothers, and trolls? He did indeed, as certainly as Odysseus heard the Siren sing. Like the heroes of the fairy tales, Andersen went out into the wide world, with a good deal of naïveté, curiosity, and lust for life as ballast. He sought the princess and half the kingdom. Nothing less would do, for he was a real poet.

He did not care for his soldiers, and the theatre did not amuse him; the only thing, in fact, he thought anything of was to drive out and show a new suit of clothes. He had a coat for every hour of the day; and as one would say of a king "He is in his cabinet," so one could say of him, "The emperor is in his dressing-room.

Most everyone knows the story of the Emperor's New Clothes but what sets this book apart from the rest is Virginia Lee Burton's whimsical illustrations. It's fun for you and your child to just sit and examine the drawomgs. There is so much going on that you can make side stories from the pictures alone. Miss Burton was a true genius of her craft.

The story itself is well told and this book will be a keeper in your child's library.

Many versions exist but this is my favorite because of the illustrations (I laughed) and the reminder at the end of the book (About the story) ... "All we know is that the story of the emperor will last forever because in every man's heart is the hope that there will always be someone to speak the truth where there is hypocrisy. And because as long as there are foolish grownups in the world, there will be children who cannot be fooled."

This is a beautifully illustrated classic tale. I always loved the story as a child and was excited to share it with my children. I researched several different publications and found a few really oddly illustrated ones! I always love Virginia Lee Burton's illustrations, so this was the perfect option for us!

Get this book for the kids in your life. Do it for the child's future mental health.

It's one of the earliest lessons I recieved that later became useful to me in professional life when I was trying to make sense of corporate politics. The child will enjoy the surface story now and in the future they won't feel so alone cos they'll recognise that wise storytellers have been describing this phenomenon/syndrome for centuries. Maybe it will help them to avoid the emperor's error.

Get this book for the new middle manager or executive advisor in your life. It'll remind them to avoid the pitfall, and give them an analogy to use when they're trying to communicate the problem to their peers.

Nickelodean TV featured a version of this story on its' Ruby & Max cartoon series so thought I'd carry it a step further by getting the book to read to my grandson. This one has marvelous artwork and our "Max" loved looking at the pictures and hearing the story read to him. A little difficult to get the moral across but you can easily expand on the story while reading it and I think we'll read it again sometime. Enjoy reading old tales to my grandchildren that I heard when I was young. Called 4 bookstores in my area and none of them carried it. Thanks to Amazon, you can find pretty much everything you're looking for.

I have always loved this story; even as an adult! I compare it to many politicians these days who think we can't see their incompetence. I give it to my "political" friends, but also to my grandchildren to tell them to look into the real character of people.

Great story. I have been wanting to purchase a hard cover copy of The Emperor's New Clothes for a long time. This particular book is nicely put together and very attractive.

My husband and I have been looking for secular books to teach our son about morals and values. Although probably too long and wordy for our 3 year old, I think that has he yes older this will be a favorite. It teaches about honesty, integrity, and standing up for what you know is right.
