Probably not the best translation of this story but the story itself is a good one, the pictures are a little dated. I read one translation with animals pictures and then when the emperor had no clothes it was. My kids thought it was funny when they could see his butt. So we read it again. The moral of the story is that we shouldn't be so worried about what other people think... But the ending of this version sort of downplays the lesson.
