2003 Award
The Nightingale
( retold and illus. by Jerry Pinkney, Penguin $16.99 Score: ) Instead of the usual Chinese setting, Jerry Pinkney transports this classic tale to Morocco with lush and beautiful watercolors.Instead of an Emperor, there is a King and the people of his court have different titles, as well. Pinkney's beautiful retelling has a musical quality that matches the rich and delicately detailed illustrations of the people, architecture and animals of Northwest Africa.6-10. Equally special and a 2003 Platinum Award winner, The Nightingale (retold by Stephen Mitchell/illus. by Bagram Ibatoulline, Candlewick $17.99 ) A retelling of a timeless tale by Hans Christian Andersen about an Emperor who learns almost too late that the novelty of a bejeweled mechanical bird is not as lasting or precious as the song and love of the real nightingale. Illustrated with the artistry of classic Chinese scroll paintings! 610.
