Item Description...
Set in Morocco, this adapted Chinese tale tells of the plain little bird with a magical voice who, after saving the king, decides not to live a pampered life in the luxurious surrounding of the castle but rather to return home to live his simple life in the forest he loves.

Publishers Description
Following on the brilliant success of The Little Match Girl and his fourth Caldecott Honor Book, The Ugly Duckling, Jerry Pinkney brings us another enchanting adaptation of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. The Nightingale is the story of a plain little bird whose beautiful songs bring her great fame, even winning her an esteemed place in the king's court. Eventually, however, after saving the life of the king, the modest nightingale chooses to return to her peaceful life in the forest. Although the original tale is set in China, Jerry Pinkney decided to add a unique twist to his own adaptation by moving the setting to Morocco-and the resulting artwork is spectacular. The lush, elaborate watercolor illustrations feature the diverse peoples, rich costumes, and amazing architecture of Northwest Africa, making this version of The Nightingale a true picture book original!

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beautiful illustrations :)  Feb 17, 2010
This story seems to me to hew very closely to what I remember of the original Nightingale by Andersen... but then, I don't have it directly in front of me to compare. Regardless, the only big change I see is moving the setting to Morocco instead of China (which is just as well, China was only chosen as a shorthand for "far away and mysterious", and who doesn't know all about China by now?) and having a "Fixer-of-all-Things" instead of a clockmaker.

The illustrations are colorful and lovely, and the story is as touching as always, with the classic Andersen theme of valuing the real above the fake.
A beautiful version of a classic  Feb 8, 2010
Pinkney is amazing...his books are top of my list for children's gifts...the art is beautiful, rich and detailed...and words have a gentle flow ...great to be read aloud and shared
The Nightingale Classic Tale  Dec 10, 2009
An updated twist on the classic tale of the little nightingale who is caged and loses her life energy in captivity. When released, she returns to her beautiful singing and freedom and saves the life of the king. Fabulous illustrations and a beautiful rendering of the story. This wonderful book should be read by any adult or child who enjoys fairy tales - a message for everyone.
