    One day the emperor received a large packet on which was written “The Nightingale.” “Here is no doubt a new book about our celebrated bird,” said the emperor. But instead of a book, it was a work of art contained in a casket, an artificial nightingale made to look like a living one, and covered all over with diamonds, rubies, and sapphires.   The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France--a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women/5.

    The nightingale sings so sweetly that everyone loves to hear her song. But when the Emperor of China receives a new dazzling mechanical songbird made from gold and rubies, he has eyes for nothing else. What will become of the little nightingale now? This book is colourfully illustrated by Graham Philpot. Everyone at the Emperor's court is enchanted by the song of the nightingale; but one day, the Emperor receives a glittering mechanical nightingale and the real bird is forgotten. Then the Emperor falls ill, and it seems that nothing can save fun activities after the story, and online audio in both British English and American English.

A Chinese emperor prefers the tinkling of a bejeweled mechanical bird to the song of a real nightingale.
