The Nightingale

By Hans Christian Andersen/retold by: Bobby Stevenson

In the forest of an emperor's gardens lives a nightingale, which sings heavenly songs that are as lovely to hear as the emperor's palace is lovely to see. Over time, a mechanical singing bird takes the nightingale's place. When it stops working, the sad and sickly emperor longs for the real nightingale to return. This story is adapted from a fairytale written by Hans Christian Andersen in 1843.
