Description
Many are familiar with this powerful and moving Hans Christian Andersen tale, but now internationally renowned illustrator Kveta Pacovska takes a fresh, modern approach unlike any version of the story yet published. It is the tale of a poor little girl who wanders the streets, freezing and homeless. The girl huddles in a corner between two buildings, and all she has to keep herself warm are some matches. Each match sparks brilliant visions of a better life - warm food, glittering Christmas trees, and a loving family. The little girl cannot resist lighting match after match to keep the images coming, until at last she glimpses a bright place free from fear and hunger.

With an eye for bold colours and wittily avantgarde compositions, Pacovska has created a truly novel vision of this poignant tale. Each page springs to life with imagination.
