Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a prolific Danish author and poet best known for his fairy tales. His stories have crossed all limitations of time and space, having been translated into more than 125 languages,and have become an integral part of children’s literature worldwide. A master of the genre, his stories present lessons and entertainment for readers of all ages.

Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for The Little House, Burton’s books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children’s picture books, including Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel and Katy and the Big Snow.
