This retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen tale is sure to please those for whom it is intended. Bold watercolors compliment the text. The Spanish is advanced yet easy to comprehend. It will be appreciated both by natives and by students in immersion programs. We all know the story: the king who gets taken in by a couple of charlatans who convince him and others in his court that they can create a gorgeous suit. But there is a catch, if you are dumb you cannot see the suit. The king and his aides get taken in and it takes the candor of a child to "see" the truth. A child is the hero of this story hence the children will enjoy being the smart ones this time around. This is a Green Level "Read-It! Readers En Espanol" book for the more advanced child. It can be used with the younger crowd or on a one-on-one basis.
