    The Little Match Girl is a timeless fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, one of the greatest fairytale writers ever. It is about a poor girl who wanders through the snowed-in streets on New Year's Eve without being able to sell a single box of matches. She lights the last three matches to keep warm, each flame evoking visions of a happier life. The lights rise higher and higher, all the way to the stars... until she beholds a falling star, shooting across the sky.

    Inspired by Andersen's unforgettable fairy tale, the renowned Slovenian artist Polona Lovšin spent years dreaming up The Little Match Girl like never done before. And yet, there are still many of them on the Earth nowadays. Little match girls, that is.

    In this new edition, Sanje reawakens the moving story of a dying child's dreams and hopes. The classic fairytale is revived by modern, exceptional illustrations, which, just like the fairytale itself, make us question the values of our time through their beauty.

    Her little hands were almost frozen with the cold. Ah! perhaps a burning match might be some good, if she could draw it from the bundle and strike it against the wall, just to warm her fingers. She drew one out—scratch! how it sputtered as it burnt! It gave a warm, bright light, like a little candle, as she held her hand over it. It was really a wonderful light.
