Editorial Reviews

The croak of a frog, the chime of silver bells, and the delicate chirp of the titular bird are just some of the supremely effective and diverse sound effects found in the aural landscape of the audiobook version of Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless fairy tale about a one-of-a-kind nightingale who illustrates the beauty of the natural world to a Chinese emperor at a particularly fortuitous time.

Elizabeth Rickards channels Mother Goose with her warm, comforting tone in a performance that will be music to the ears of young children.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Thumbelina and Other Fairy Tales collection.

This delightful selection is by one of the classic masters of the genre, presented in lively Naxos AudioBooks style with music and sound effects.

This recording is also unique in that the story is read by the finalists of the Naxos AudioBooks/The Times Voice of the Year competition, which offered a recording opportunity to talented reader who had never studied or worked professionally. The competition produced some outstanding natural talent as this recording shows!
