    Illustrated by the beloved creator of Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, The Little House, and Katy and the Big Snow, this is a delightful version of the tale that boys and girls have loved for centuries. The Emperor himself, his court, and his clothes—or lack of them—are as outrageous and comical as only the master storyteller Hans Christian Andersen can make them, and Virginia Lee Burton adds to this tale of fun her own irrepressible humor in pictures and design.

    This lovely new Folk Tale Classics edition celebrates Burton’s lively concoction of remarkable spirit and beauty.
