First Reading Four : The Emperor and the Nightingale CD-Audio

Illustrated by Graham Philpot


This is the "The classic Hans Christian Andersen" story retold with simple text for children just beginning to read.

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.

It is developed in conjunction with reading experts from Roehampton University.
