THE WINTER NIGHTINGALE

This comes closer to a universal child appeal than the average translation from the French. Somehow, most stories for children beyond picture book age, when translated from the French seem either thin and unreal or obviously moral. This is neither. It is a romantic story of an orphan girl, with a conviction that she will be a great singer, and of a lonely boy, who becomes her knight errant, of the terrific barriers to fame they find, of failure, and of some small degree of success.
