    The classic Han Christian gets a graphic novel reboot. This is a story about a vain Emperor who hires two tailors to create a magical outfit that only clever people can see. When a clever boy points out to what the Emperor is truly wearing, the Emperor is faced seeing himself for who he really is. The illustrations gives this beloved tale freshness. At the same time, the earthy toned backdrop gave it a vintage feel.

    We liked how it was drawn. A classic telling of the story in graphic novel form - my daughter enjoyed learning about the story.

    The art and style of this book reminds me of other kids books I read while growing up and I loved it. Apart from the villains not getting their just desserts, I really enjoyed it.

    Pretty faithful adaptation of the classic fairytale. The illustrations here definitely set it apart, though. They're foreign, to the extent that I checked to see if it was a translation. I love the color choices as well. The reteller does add some interesting touches by explicitly mentioning how the king is neglecting being a good king by devoting all his time and resources to clothing. Adds an additional layer of moral. But the plot rather plods, and it took me two sittings to finish this.

    I'm a big fan of this fairy tale series by Stone Arch Press. I've already reviewed both Rapunzel and Three Little Pigs and hope to read the rest of them with my son. The story remains quite true to the original excepting that the emperor is in his underwear instead of being naked and there's a fun twist with the ending. The artwork is bright and bold with wonderful eccentric figures. The artist appears to have done the foreground figures on watercolour paper with the backgrounds done in some oth I'm a big fan of this fairy tale series by Stone Arch Press.

Not my favourite in this series but still a great fun book.

    The story is the traditional telling of the classic with clear, bright illustrations. At the end of the graphic novel, the author includes a glossary, a short history of the story, discussion questions, writing prompts, and a website for further exploration.

    A very competent retelling of the classic tale in graphic novel form. A really liked the storytelling and detail choices Peters made with her writing. Timmins' art was pleasantly stylized and effective, but it didn't particularly evoke the narrative or themes for me.

    The emperors new clothes do not show as anything to people who are not clever enough to see it.

    Nice, straightforward retelling of this classic tale in a graphic novel form. There are also other fairytales in this same series that have received the same treatment.
