Publisher's Summary

The Emperor himself, his court, and his clothes - or lack of them - are ridiculous as only the master storyteller Hans Christian Andersen can make them.

Political satire version of traditional tale

This audiobook is probably best suited to older children (ages 10 and up), since the narrators use the story as a way to satirize government policies. Much of the satirical content went way above my 6 and 8 year old's heads. If you're looking for a faithful retelling, this is not the version to choose.
