I just read the story...
Very nice!!
Is this a famous tale (since there is a painting about it)?

I really like the imperor in the painting, he seems really fat and pwerful:)...but seriously the expressions of the three characters are all really well done, I think.

Rami - yes, the fairytale was written by the famous 19th century Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. He wrote many stories that we all know, but we don't always know it is him.

Steliano - sometimes those 19th century illustrators can really surprise us.
