by Hans Christian Andersen & adapted by Fiona Waters & illustrated by Paul Birkbeck. Elaborate, richly detailed illustrations give this Nightingale a stately air; the Emperor’s porcelain palace is thick with ornaments and architectural frills, his gardens with solid masses of exotic flora, and most scenes are viewed through a bluish light that gives them a willow plate look. Other than dropping most of Andersen’s coy asides, Waters leaves the text more or less intact. It’s not the first picture book rendition of the tale-by a long shot-but it is one of the most handsome and readable ones.

She chooses the best and most vivid images in the original story, and her writing is graceful and lucid. Birkbeck's jewel-toned tapestrylike illustrations are lush and rich with detail, employing light and shadow effectively. They also contain deft touches of humor, as when the courtiers are tearing the palace apart to look for the nightingale.

The Nightingale" (Danish: "Nattergalen") is a literary fairy tale written by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen about an emperor who prefers the tinkling of a bejeweled mechanical bird to the song of a real nightingale. When the Emperor is near death, the nightingale's song restores his health.

From a story by Hans Christian Andersen. In ancient China, young emperor Wu is kept a virtual prisoner in his palace by his devious guardian, Li Si. Wu believes the world outside the Forbidden City is an evil and dangerous place. Neil Duffield is a highly successful writer of plays for children and young people, with over fifty productions under his belt, many of these commissioned by leading UK theatres and touring companie. aving worked closely with Neil during my career as a theatre director, I can vouch for his understanding of young audiences by the spellbound silences (and roars of laughter) that greet his productions. David Farmer, Drama Resource.

An emperor learns that the natural voice of the nightingale is more beautiful than the song of an artificial one.
