The Little Match Girl (Picture Puffin Books)by Jerry Pinkney
Synopses & Reviews
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)
Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale is beautifully adapted by Caldecott Honor illustrator Jerry Pinkney. Plucking a Danish girl from America's 19th century melting pot, this adaptation sheds new light on the invisibility of the poor among the prosperous--a circumstance as familiar in Andersen's day as today.
