The Emperors New Clothes

Publisher: Templar

This is a satirical story about a very vain Emperor who adores beautiful new clothes and has wardrobes full of them!

When two sly swindlers, masquerading as weavers, tell him that they can make the most beautiful cloth he has ever seen into an incredible outfit, the Emperor's foolhardy vanity gets the better of him.

Marcus Sedgwick's retelling is masterfully accomplished. He has used verse to enhance the text and animals to give an anthropomorphic and human account of this story. Alison Jay's illustrations are of stunning quality and they accompany the action beautifully.
