The Nightingale Audiobook

The Nightingale

Author: Hans Christian Andersen Narrator: Michael Ball Release Date: June 2021

A long time ago, the Emperor of China lived in a magnificent palace made of fine china and surrounded by a splendid garden that was so big that even the gardener did not know it all of it. One day, the Emperor read a book that said that the most marvellous bird was the nightingale and so he asked his court to find him one because he wanted to hear it sing that very evening. But, where could one be found? See how a little bird enchants an entire kingdom, through the power of music, in the outstanding fairy tale of Hans Christian Andersen: The Nightingale narrated by Michael Ball, OBE. - Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish author, poet and artist. Celebrated for his children's literature, his most cherished fairy tales include 'The Emperor's New Clothes', 'The Little Mermaid', 'The Nightingale', 'The Steadfast Tin Soldier', 'The Snow Queen', 'The Ugly Duckling' and 'The Little Match Girl'. His books have been translated into over 160 languages, and today there is no child or adult that isn't familiar with Andersen's whimsical characters. His fairy tales have been adapted to the stage and to the screen countless times, most notably by Disney with the animated films 'The Little Mermaid' from 1989 and the 2013 'Frozen' franchise, which is loosely based on 'The Snow Queen'. Thanks to Andersen's contribution to children's literature, his birth date, April 2nd, is celebrated as the International Children's Book Day.
