Book Description

The proud emperor loves to parade before his people with beautiful clothes. When a court official suggests paying the soldiers more money so they don’t have to beg for food, the furious emperor is ready to throw him in jail.
Now everyone fears saying anything displeasing to the emperor. When two swindlers decide to take advantage of him by selling him invisible clothes with special powers, none of the emperor’s advisors dare to tell him the truth. The emperor parades through the city in his underwear until one young lad is brave enough to speak honestly and opens the emperor’s eyes. In this retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen classic folktale, the emperor learns to value honest advisors, even when the truth is unpleasant.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Children's books by Carl Sommer and ilustrated by Ignacio Noe 24 May 2015
    By Cerberus - Published on
    Format:Library Binding|Verified Purchase
    Beautifully written with gorgeous illustrations by Ignacio Noe. This book is so beautifully drawn I was tempted to keep it for myself but it is for my granddaughter who is two and a half. I firmly believe in reading to children from the earliest ages. The only disappointment was that I thought this volume came with a read-along CD as it does with 'Little Red Riding Hood' but apparently I was mistaken.
    The read-along version of'Little Red Riding Hood' is due this week and I am excited to have it for my granddaughter.
    I don't think anyone will be disappointed with the quality of these books and if you enjoy your time reading to your children,grandchildren or other little ones these should do the serve you nicely.
    4.0 out of 5 stars A kid's opinion. 22 Mar. 2015
    By Annie - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I bought the book because it was on my 6 year old's reading list. He was unable to read it, and
    comprehend it at the same time. When I read it to him, he understood it alot better. He
    couldn't understand why everyone lied, and let the emperor make a fool out of himself. He got that
    point,but he saw everyone as lame, the child not being a hero, that deserved riches, but a kid that
    was just being honest. Like everyone should. He got more out of the fact he didn't like the book.
    He doesn't want to read it again, or have it read to him. He said he was glad he didn't live there.
    But the story it self is the same as the original story, basically and the illustration is wonderful.
    I do recommend this book, an older child would be able to read it better. But if you want to read to
    your child, it is interesting to hear your child's opinion of the story.

    5.0 out of 5 stars From underwear to honesty! 26 April 2014
    By Richard and Liz - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The selfish emperor, who spends so much money that his soldiers often have to beg for food, is outraged when an official dares to suggest that they be paid more. No one now dare say anything against the emperor.

    ENTER Rex and Max, two lazy swindlers! Due to his pride, the emperor is easily taken in by them, believing everything they say. Their payment? Silk, gold thread and coins.

    One family had taught their children to always tell the truth, so when their little boy Frederick sees the emperor in his underwear he tells him! (Out of the mouths of babes!) Upon realizing the truth about himself, the emperor changes his ways and Frederick and his family are rewarded. You'll have to read the book to find out how!

    Just so you know, when the emperor is parading around in his "invisible" clothes, he is in fact fully clothed in his long underwear so there is nothing indecent about the illustrations in this book.

    This well-written and illustrated book has freshened up the "old" tale which of course is one that never really ages and is as relevant today as when it was first written WAY back when. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from our house to yours.

    Such an interesting story that teaches a good lesson about pride and also about telling the truth. A fun story for young and old!
