Product Description

The luminous art of three-time Caldecott Honor recipient Jerry Pinkney transforms the nineteenth-century Danish girl of Hans Christian Andersen's tale into a child plucked straight from America's melting pot, shedding new light on the invisibility of the poor among the prosperous-a circumstance as familiar in Andersen's day as it is in our own. It is a cold New Year's Eve in a prosperous American city of the early twentieth century. People clutch their coats close to their bodies as they hurry home to prepare for the evening's festivities. No one notices the poor little girl huddling in a corner, trying to keep warm by lighting the matches she was given to sell on the street. As each match flickers to life, she sees marvelous visions and feels the warm glow of hope and love. Recommended for ages 3 to 5.

Publisher's Description

On the last night of December, a little girl huddles in the bitter cold, unable to go home until she has sold her bundle of matches. One by one, she lights the matches to keep warm, and, as each match lights, the girl's cold, gray world dissolves into visions of light and warmth. Isadora's luminous paintings tell this classic story of a valiant spirit set free at last. Full-color illustrations.

    A great book that sticks to the original story. The illustrations are awsome. A wonderful story and a great addition to the Christmas stories I already have.
