In a faraway kingdom, there lives an Emperor who prizes fancy clothes above all else. He buys suit after suit made of the most expensive materials instead of tending to his threadbare kingdom. Then, one day, two traveling merchants offer to make the Emperor a special suit that has magical powers. The merchants, however, are not who they claim to be, and the suit has one major flaw no one can see it!

I enjoyed this retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale. A good way to portray the idea of vanity to children. I might put this on a school reading list for second or third-graders.

In this book it talks about a emperor who wants to have everything his was. He loves clothes and wants them to be bright and shinny. Then one day instead of paying attention he was about to get robbed he let some strangers make him a brilliant piece of clothing. After he ordered all the jewles they ended up stealing all of them. They told the emperor his suit was invisible but he looked wonderful. When really he didn't have anything on but his undergarment. He learned a lesson that day to be so involved in hiself and become a better ruller.This was a cute comic as well. I didn't like it as well as the other but it was still good. It teaches a good morral also. It will show children not to just think about theirselves but to think about what they are doing empacts everyone else too.This book would be a good book for children to read. It's funny and teaches them good morrals. In the classroom we would read it aloud as a group and then discuss it as a whole classroom.

I'm a big fan of this fairy tale series by Stone Arch Press. I've already reviewed both Rapunzel and Three Little Pigs and hope to read the rest of them with my son. The story remains quite true to the original excepting that the emperor is in his underwear instead of being naked and there's a fun twist with the ending. The artwork is bright and bold with wonderful eccentric figures. The artist appears to have done the foreground figures on watercolour paper with the backgrounds done in some other method. Not my favourite in this series but still a great fun book.
