about

With Matchless, Gregory Maguire has reinvented the Hans Christian Andersen classic The Little Match Girl for a new time and new audiences. Originally asked by National Public Radio to write an original story with a Christmas theme, the New York Times bestselling author of Wicked and A Lion Among Men was once again inspired by the fairy tales we all loved in childhood—and he composed a poignant and enchanting tale of transcendence. A lovely and beautifully illustrated gift, Matchless places Andersen’s pitiful waif in the august company of Maguire’s previously re-imagined Snow White (*Mirror, Mirror*), Cinderella (*Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister*), and, of course, the Wicked Witch and other denizens of Oz.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Matchless I wish I had realized how short this book was before I purchased it. Not worth the $15.99.
