In the Emperor’s New Clothes, the emperor spends all his money on purchasing new clothing, as he loves having new clothes. In the process he ignores his subjects and kingdom but he taught a hilarious lesson by someone for his materialistic habits. In Snow Queen a wicked sprite made a mirror with power to show everything that was beautiful and magnificent as mean and everything that was good for nothing, poor and mean as beautiful.
