The emperor can never find the perfect outfit until he meets the Rogue brothers, who can make clothes so special that only the coolest people are able to see them. But what happens when no one in the emperor's court can see the clothes-and the emperor can't either? Is no one cool enough or perhaps...there are no clothes to see? This funny, clever adaptation of the classic Hans Christian Anderson tale is captured by Lee Harper in watercolor and pencil. There is an author's note about the tale's origin and Lee's choice to create an imaginary kingdom where emperor penguins, walruses, albatross, seals, and polar bears all live-and shop-together.
