Summary

The Emperor loves to wear the most fashionable and finest clothes in the land. However, when two strangers suggest that they can weave him a special suit - which is invisible to anyone who's not worthy and wise - it has to be seen to be believed.

A magical retelling of the classic fairy tale, read by Tamsin Greig.

Wonderful

I read this when I was a child and was eager to hear it once again. The narrator did a splendid job.
