The emperor was terribly proud and vain and spent all his money on clothes. One day, two scoundrels arrived at the palace and persuaded the emperor that they could weave magical cloth. He put them to work and they made him the finest robes he had ever owned. But the emperor had a lesson to learn, and his new clothes were quite a sight to behold!
