Steven Guarnaccia presents a reworked version of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale with illustrations that bring a touch of contemporaneity. The emperor and his courtiers wear garments that will remind readers of those worn by Mick Jagger and the Beatles in the 1960s and ’70s, men’s shoes by famous English and American brands, instantly recognisable hat styles, and boots like those worn by Elton John during his glittering career. What does not change, however, is the moral of the story. Here, too, a child is the first to exclaim, “The emperor has no clothes!” The illustrations feature crisp lines and colourful drawings with Guarnaccia’s unmistakable style and vintage feel.
