Spine faded a little. Blue linen hardcover with white stamped letters and pictures in the front.

Denmark? Sweden? Norway? Or perhaps Finland? No, none of these, and yet a little piece of each of them". And then she goes on to tell the story of Leni, the winter nightingale (but really a little girl with dark curls and a golden voice) who wanted more than anything else in the world to learn singing; of the mysterious stranger who heard her and told her she would be a great singer some day; of her decision to run away from home in order to study in the big city; of her sisters' despair at losing her; and of the brave boy, Karel, and his valiant dog, Bror, who went to find her. ; B&W Illustrations; 6.25" x 8.5"; 224 pages
