Description
An elegant retelling illustrated with glowing watercolours by a talented artist. The Nightingale is one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beautiful stories. Set in the magnificence of imperial China, it tells a tale of values. Which is most precious? A small grey bird with many beautiful songs or a mechanical bird with just one song but decorated all over with diamonds, rubies and sapphires? AUTHOR: Hans Christian Andersen was born near Copenhagen, Denmark, in the early 1800s. He is most remembered for his fairy tales. Pirkko Vainio is an illustrator and a graphic designer who studied at the Academy of Art in Helsinki. AGES: 4-8

Notes

Description
Though the emperor banishes the nightingale in preference of a jeweled mechanical imitation, the little bird remains faithful and returns years later when the emperor is near death and no one else can help him.
