Audible Editor Reviews

Warmly narrated with tender poignancy by Tom Bosley (of Happy Days fame and the dear father everyone wishes they had), The Nightingale is Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale about a sad Chinese emperor who turns to a mechanical bird for happiness rather than simply listening to the sweet sounds of the very real nightingale nearby.
When the robot bird wears out, as machines are wont to do, so too does the Emperor. It is up to the true nightingale to restore the Emperor’s health and sense of what’s truly important in a fleeting world in which we are all simply passing through.
Other classic children’s tales are also included in this collection.
