Retelling of Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales + Christian expositions
The Emperor’s New Clothes and Other Stories brings together more of Geoffrey Thomas’s short stories, each brimming with the big heartedness, warmth and homespun humour that he is known for.
From historic Europe to the Asian continent, Geoffrey Thomas introduces a series of curious characters in his mesmerising collection based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales: a golden swan flies around the world; an old poet has a mysterious visitor; an Emperor is fooled by his ambition.

3) The Little Boy who Shot the Old Poet
4) The Nightingale
5) The Two Fir Trees
