Product Description

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. The luminous art of three-time Caldecott Honor recipient Jerry Pinkney transforms the nineteenth-century Danish girl of 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. Recommended for ages 5 and up.

    This may be a classic, but its storyline is terribly sad and not very good in my opinion. The story tells of this little girl who is basically uncared for and winds up dying in the cold. Not a great read aloud book for children at all.

    Another great illustrated book. It sticks to the original story and the artistry is beautiful.
