Emperors New Clothes by Ladybird

In this hip hilarious retelling, Hans Christian Andersen's beloved fairy tale is reimagined by an all-star celebrity cast. Among the writers are Academy Award-winning and -nominated actors and actresses and other personalities from the worlds of entertainment and popular culture. Each celebrity contribution is illustrated by artists who have created some of the most treasured classics of children's literature-Caldecott Medal and Honor winners, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonists, New Yorker cover contributors, and many other esteemed talents. The contributors' creative gifts are outshined only by their generosity: All of the royalties from this book have been donated to Starbright, an innovative charitable foundation committed to improving the lives of seriously ill children. And on the enclosed compact disc, the book leaps into life-with music, sound effects, an original song, and all the humor and dramatic flair of the celebrity authors' finest performances -in a one-of-a-kind audio event for the entire family.

About the Author

Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children's picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.
