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.

I have enjoyed reading this to my grandchildren.

I loved Virginia Burton's illustrations as a child and chose this version of a classic to share with my sixth graders.

For us visual types the art helps frame the story.

Nickelodean TV featured a version of this story on its' Ruby & Max cartoon series so thought I'd carry it a step further by getting the book to read to my grandson. This one has marvelous artwork and our "Max" loved looking at the pictures and hearing the story read to him. A little difficult to get the moral across but you can easily expand on the story while reading it and I think we'll read it again sometime. Enjoy reading old tales to my grandchildren that I heard when I was young. Called 4 bookstores in my area and none of them carried it. Thanks to Amazon, you can find pretty much everything you're looking for.

I have seen several versions of the story on TV but I was blown away by the art of Virginia Lee Burton in adapting this Hans Christian Anderson fable. For us visual types the art helps frame the story. It is also cleaverly done when the emperpor is looking in the mirror the angle is such that we see what the empoer sees. It is a great story for early elementary teachers (grades 1 and 2) to read aloud to their reading groups. It is also a good story for remedial English learners because it is an interesting story and the vocabulary is straight forward. It woulld be an excellent project for student teachers to use for any of their reading class projects. As with all fables it has a moral without being religious.

I remember this book from when I was a child - I bought it for my child as a learning experience. There is great meaning behind the story if you look for it.
