The Emperor and the Nightingale
The Emperor and his court in ancient China discover a little gray bird with an enchanting song. But when the Emperor is presented with a jewel-encrusted artificial singing bird, he banishes the nightingale from his court. Years later, he realizes that the song of the real nightingale is the true treasure. With profound simplicity, this classic tale from Hans Christian Andersen will captivate young and old alike.
