A heart-warming Christmas story

Superbly illustrated by internationally acclaimed artist Květa Pacovská

Illustrated with extraordinary originality

Beautifully designed slip cased gift edition

Hans Christian Andersen’s moving tale of a poor little girl at Christmastime has touched generations of readers. Now internationally renowned illustrator Květa Pacovská brings a fresh, modern approach to this story, one unlike any version yet published.
The tale of a little girl who wanders the streets, freezing and homeless. All she has to keep herself warm are some matches.
Amazingly, each match sparks brilliant visions of a better life. The little girl cannot resist lighting one after another to keep the images coming, until at last she glimpses a bright place free from fear and hunger.
