"রূপকথা, উপকথা, ফেবল, মরালিটি টেল, এসব ব্র‍্যাকেট ভেঙে যে সীমিত সংখ্যক গল্প বাস্তবের যথার্থ রূপক হয়ে উঠতে পেরেছে, তাদের মধ্যে সবচেয়ে ওপরের দিকেই থাকবে এই কাহিনিটি। তবে আমাদের, মানে বাঙালি পাঠকের কাছে এই কাহিনির আসল চেহারাটা তুলে ধরার কৃতিত্ব নীরেন্দ্রনাথ চক্রবর্তীর। তিনি না লিখলে আমার প্রচারের আলোয় সত্যি হয়ে ওঠা মিথ্যের অসারতা প্রমাণে শিশুর সরলতার মহিমা এত ভালোভাবে বুঝতাম কি? "রাজা, তোর কাপড় কোথায়?"-এর মতো উক্তি ছাড়া এর দমদার প্রভাব বোধহয় আমাদের মনে এতটা দীর্ঘস্থায়ী হত না।" said.

" I would definitely be the one shouting about the Emperor's new "clothes". Never lose your childish ability to question. " said.

" I guess this story must have engendered the cynicism I retain to this day. A child should read this before being let loose on newspapers and adverts " said.

" children, euphoria and truth come together here. debunking myths is for grownups a second nature as long it's not one of themself. " said.

" This has always been one of my favorite tales as I think its moral is so wise. In this edition, the illustrations are fabulous. I adored all the many dogs (mostly naked of course) that appear on nearly every page. (I was almost tempted to make a dogs shelf but then I’d feel obligated to add all my books about dogs, something I’ve successfully managed to resist doing thus far.) " said.

" Andersen's timeless story is the best summation of political behavior ever written. It should be required reading for every political science major and anyone interested in politics and government. Andersen predicted and distilled the essence of modern political campaigns, especially in the United States. " said.

" Classic story that teaches a morals lesson at the same time:) In this story, the Emperor ends up looking like a complete fool when he is talked into buying a suit of "invisible" clothing, & ends up walking around nude. It's humbling lesson for him, & he learns that rich men & wise men can be fooled by greed & pride. " said.

" Like Anderson's short story "The Snow Queen" the Emperor's new clothes emphasizes the virtues of childlikeness in contrast to the pride of those who have grown up in all the wrong ways.I of course was vaguely familiar with the classic story, primarily with how it took a child to speak the obvious, but I knew none of the details, and they were delightful to learn and they made the story all the better. " said.
