A summary of the original Short Story written by: Christian Andersen
Once upon a time there was an emperor that spent all his money on expensive clothes. He cared nothing about other activities like going to the theatre, or going for a ride in his carriage, except to show off his new clothes. He didn´t even care about talking to people.
In the great city where he lived came lots of tourists, one day came two swindlers and let it be known they were weavers and said they could make to the emperor the most magnificent suit from a special fabric. Not only were their colors and patterns uncommonly fine, but clothes made of this cloth were only visible for non stupid people.
