Item description for The Little Match Girl (Picture Puffin Books) by Hans Christian Andersen & Jerry Pinkney...

The wares of the poor little match girl illuminate her cold world, bringing some beauty to her brief, tragic life.

Publishers Description
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.
" A] beautifully illustrated version of a classic tale." ("Booklist," starred review)

Reviews - What do customers think about The Little Match Girl (Picture Puffin Books)?

A powerful story  Mar 25, 2008
I first saw this story as a cartoon on tv. It made me cry a lot. It's a very sad story. However, it has a very powerful messages in terms of love, care, poverty, cruelty and dreams. I gave an assignment to my ELD students in high school and some students even told me how touchy the story was. I love the pictures in this book. It's really creative. Overall it's a great, sad story for all ages.
I read it as a child, and it has helped me as an adult to understand myself  Feb 8, 2008
I want to agree with another reviewer that the meaning of the book for me was to look within for our own rich resources. That we can transform our own world if we transform our minds. The young girl used her imagination to picture herself out of the situation until it happened. Law of Attraction? Maybe from today's perspective. I just took it to mean that in this time in my life I have to go within to transform my own situation. God knows, I tried everything else :)

I was read the Spanish version "La Pequena Vendedora de Fosforos."
A Winter Favorite  Jan 22, 2008
This is one of my favorite stories to hear at Christmas-time. It really reminds you to be thankful of all that you have. My grandmother read this story to all of her grandchildren every year on Christmas Day. This story holds fond memories for me. Since she is no longer here to read the story to us, and now all of the grandchildren are adults, I wanted to have a copy of the story so that when I have children one day, I can read it to them. I want to carry on the tradition.
Very good service  Oct 25, 2007
Book was sent in great condition and in a timely manner. I would use the service again.
Beautiful keepsake for young and old  Jun 26, 2007
Fall in love with this timeless Hans Christian Anderson story all over again. I was originally searching for an old record of this story that included a book from the 1960's. Unable to find the storybook and record set I wanted, I came across this book. The illustrations are beautiful. The book makes a wonderful gift for someone you love or for yourself.
