" Very prevalent to today's media and materialistic society. One of my favourite Angela Barrett. I love her designs of pre-war fashion. " 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.

" 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.

" A fairy tale by Hans Cristian Anderson, what's not to love? This story was referenced in a a book I recently read. I felt the need to tie them together. A delightful story and narrative on human nature. " 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.

" 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.
