The nightingale : a fairy tale

The Nightingale is the story of a plain little bird whose beautiful songs bring her great fame, even winning her an esteemed place in the king's court. Eventually, however, after saving the life of the king, the modest nightingale chooses to return to her peaceful life in the forest. Though the emperor banishes the nightingale in preference of a jeweled mechanical imitation, the little bird remains faithful and returns years later when the emperor is near death and no one else can help him as only the song of the true nightingale can heal him.

  • "Der Ruf des Lebens: "Aber die Nachtigall ist das Allerbeste!" liest der Kaiser von China in einem Buch und erfährt, dass der von aller Welt gepriesene Vogel ausgerechnet in seinem Garten lebt. Als er ihn das erste Mal hört, rührt ihn der Gesang zu Tränen. Doch die Nachtigall lässt sich nicht einsperren und zum Singen dressieren. Ein Kunstvogel soll schliesslich diesen Zweck erfüllen. Gross ist die Freude an dieser Vogelmaschine, bis sie eines Tages wegen Abnutzung nicht mehr funktioniert. Das ganze Reich verfällt in Trauer und der Kaiser ist schon dem Tode nahe, als auf einmal die richtige Nachtigall vor seinem Fenster singt und ihn ins Leben zurückholt. Wie Mechanisches zwar gut von unserem Willen gelenkt werden kann, bis es sich totläuft und die Sehnsucht nach der lebendigen, verloren gegangenen Ursprünglichkeit erwacht, zeigt diese Erzählung. Eine unverdorbene, naive Offenheit spricht aus den kindlichen Gesichtern der gezeichneten Figuren. Wunderbare ganzseitige Farbaquarelle entführen uns in das ferne China aus alter Zeit und verstärken den Zauber der Geschichte für Jung und Alt. Ab 3 Jahren, *****, Denise Racine."
