Complete with an audio CD with songs sung by famous country singer Vince Gill, a classic tale is given a twist as a fancy dressing CEO demands a one-of-a-kind outfit and gets even more than he intended when his two closest advisors become too fearful to provide the advice their CEO obviously needs to hear.

About the Author:

Vince Gill's honors include being named Top Male Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year. His soulful brand of country music has earned him the title Songwriter of the Year from the Country Music Association more times than any other songwriter.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-When the Emperor goes "country," this classic story gets a new twist. Gill's retelling presents the Emperor as a CEO who doesn't "give a hoot about going out to parties, or to fancy restaurants, or even playing golf, except for the chance to show off his fancy duds. He had a different outfit for every hour of the day." Two swindlers take advantage of him, and, as most readers will know to expect, the Emperor shows up completely naked on his horse for the big parade. Although the songs on the accompanying CD may appeal to young country-music fans, the retelling lacks luster, and the bright, color cartoon illustrations are unremarkable. Hans Christian Andersen's tale is reduced here to a gimmick; the original and other, more engaging retellings are widely available, so most libraries can do without this one.
