Overview

Rare edition with unique illustrations.

Hans Christian Andersen was a Danish author best known for writing children's stories including "The Little Mermaid" and "The Ugly Duckling."
But he didn't just write short stories, and his intended audience wasn't restricted to children. In addition to his fairy tales, Andersen wrote poems, plays, novels,
travel books, essays, and more. He hungered for recognition at home (Denmark) and abroad-and he got it! Eventually. Today, his stories can be read in over one hundred languages.
But no matter what language they're in, Andersen's tales have got something for everyone. In them, you'll find beauty, tragedy, nature, religion, artfulness,
deception, betrayal, love, death, judgment, penance, and-occasionally-a happy ending.
They're complex tales, but since Andersen himself was pretty complex, we like to think that art imitates life. Or something like that.
"The Emperor's New Clothes" (Danish: Kejserens nye Kl?der) is a short tale by
Hans Christian Andersen about two weavers who promise an Emperor a new suit of clothes that is invisible to those who are unfit for their positions, stupid, or incompetent.
When the Emperor parades before his subjects in his new clothes, no one dares to say that he doesn't see any suit of clothes until a child cries out, "But he isn't wearing anything at all!" The tale has been translated into over a hundred languages.

This is the classic Hans Christian Anderson story of a man whose foolish pride gets the best of him. With bright, vivid illustrations, kids love this version.

Emperor¿s New Clothes by Hans Christian AndersenThis fantasy story is about two rascal¿s trying to make some money by making the Emperor some new clothes. The only problem with the clothes is they are an ¿invisible suit¿. The invisible suit is definitely invisible to everyone including the Emperor¿s subjects who realize very quickly the invisible suit is not suit at all the Emperor is naked! I think this story is very amusing! I think the rascals are pretty tricky to convince the emperor that invisible clothes are the style. It is also funny what the subjects have to say about the emperor¿s clothes.I would recommend this book for Kindergarten to 2nd grade students. The students will laugh at the humor of the emperor¿s new clothes. I would ask the students to design some real clothes for what they think the emperor should wear.
