In a children's picture book. . .
It was The Emperor's New Clothes, but STILL.
When I was growing up, every copy of that book I ever read showed the emperor in his underwear, and that was quite scandalous enough.
This picture not only showed his completely nude backside, it was depicted in the most realistic manner, complete with a shapely physique and a tan line.
I could just imagine the SHOCK on the faces of the sweet little girls with whom I had intended to share this book when their innocent eyes beheld the naked man. And what would their mother have thought of me? Ugh!
I am enormously grateful that Emma read the book herself first and thus prevented disaster. It's going back to the library, and I won't be checking out any others without going through them page by page and line by line.
