    1. Ms. Kelly

      would be great for a readers theater production. text doesn't match the audio exactly, so that might throw some readers off. it illustrates how the written word doesn't always transfer to the spoken word naturally. the voice actors are great, of course, but the novelty of the particular actors chosen for each character will likely be lost on most kids. also, there are whole chunks of text on the audio but not in the book. the moth through line has transitions between characters on the audio that [...]

      I read this book first, without the companion CD. This is an awesome rendition of the emperer's new clothes. Each page tells the story from a different characters point of view, so the voice delivering the story changes, and the nuances added are just wonderful. Each page is illustrated by a different famous illustrator - Maurice Sendak, Chris Van Allsburg, and Graeme Base to name a few.Then, I listened to the CD. Once again each character is read by an all-star cast of voices;Harrison Ford, Rob [...]

      The story of The Emperor's New Clothes is told from a giant cast of characters surrounding the Emperor. Each has a different, entertaining perspective on the events as they transpire. Each character is illustrated by one of 23 of the most popular children's artists, making it widely diverse in appearance, yet enhancing the individuality of the characters.And to add to the fun, the accompanying CD uses 23 celebrities to tell the story out loud. Everyone from Harrison Ford as the shady thief, to M [...]

      A retelling of HCA's tale by a variety of celebrities and illustrators. The story is told in the first person and from the perspective of the people and even some objects that enter the tale. Liam Neeson is the Imperial Prime Minister, Nathan Lane is the Imperial Dresser, Dr. Ruth Westheimer is the Imperial Physician, Jeff Goldblum is the Imperial Wizard, Dan Aykroyd is the Holy Man, Robin Williams is the Court Jester, Calvin Klein is the Emperor's Underwear, Fran Drescher is the Heralding Horn, [...]

      Fairy taleWonderful retelling, with each character a separate vignette, woven together to tell the whole story. Each vignette is written by a different person (celebrity) and each is illustrated by a different illustrator. Comes with a CD too which would probably be a great way to experience this version (although the CD is missing from the copy I read). Could be used as Reader's Theatre with each part told by a different student. Could be used as an example for a writing lesson in which each st [...]

      Steven Spielberg put this star studded set of illustrators and comedians together to give a new twist to this old story. Each star (Madonna, Robyn Williams, Joan Rives) is one character and has one page to move the story along.Each illustrator(Sendak, Joyce, Kellog. also have one page. This version is definitely raucous and ribald. You will need to edit some of the words for the young, but the older elementary school kids, I think will get the sophistication.

    7. Gina Malewicz

      Great old story told by modern actors. Really enjoyed the story content AND the audio CD that came with the book. Several famous actors read for this, Robin Williams, Madonna, Jeff Goldblum, Nathan Lane. Really entertaining for kids AND the parents.

    8. Missy

      This is a very clever telling of the Emperor's New Clothes, but my boys especially enjoyed listening to the actors on the disc. Our FAVORITE is Robin Williams as the Court Jester. Thank you, Robin, for your comic genius. We needed the laugh.

    9. Linda

      Great book with an interesting twist since it was a fund-raiser. Has an edge - not really for elementary children.Still looking for a good version for read-aloud for our elem. school. Any suggestions

    10. John Velez

      The family found this is an interesting read of the family classic narrated by many different actors and musicians on the CD of The Emperors New Clothes. Illustrations in this edition was very entertaining.

    11. Jack Kirby and the X-man

      The Starbright version is a fantastic take on the classic story - with plenty of humour and great contributions by celebrity writers and the best of children's illustrators.

    12. Abby Howe

      I had this as a cassette tape! Oh my god I've forgotten about it until now, but it was hilarious and absolutely wonderful. I need to re-listen to it soon

    13. Sarah Abernathy

      this is one of those things that I was totally obsessed with as a kid. I listened to the CD over and over again, and I really wish I could find it again now because I'd still love it.

    14. Hayleysdancer459

      This may seem ridiculous but I read this as a kid and I read it over and over and over and over. The words are practically memorized. I loved that book!!!!!!!!!!!

      When I was a kid, this story was one of my favourites. I was intrigued to read it in English and as I went on, I revived my past. It was amazing.
