The Emperor's New Clothes

A modern and funny adaptation of the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen

For the emperor of Youkali, every day is like a dream: For breakfast, he enjoys mountains of pancakes with maple syrup, elderberry ice cream and sweets. Afterwards he dresses up in his most colourful clothes to take a walk in the magnificent castle garden. He has got everything. Only real friends are missing. But one day two strange dressmakers come to town who make him a promising offer that he can’t refuse…

Folker Banik tells with much humour about seemingly boundless naivety, but also about the search for a deeper meaning behind all the superficialities in this world. Almud Kunert’s cheerful and charming illustrations bring the events surrounding the emperor to life.
