The Emperor of China loves to hear the little brown nightingale sing. Then, one day, a dazzling new songbird arrives. It is made of gold and jewels, and the Emperor has eyes for nothing else. What will happen to the little brown nightingale?
The Emperor and the Nightingale is in the Usborne First Reading series, written especially for children who are learning to read, and developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, Principal Lecturer in Education and reading specialist at the University of Roehampton.
With delightful illustrations, these books combine great stories with simple text to excite and inspire any beginner reader.
