Matchless

By Gregory Maguire
Matchless by Gregory Maguire digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

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.

“I picked this up on a whim from a holiday-themed book display in the children's department of the library. I don't remember much about the little match girl story, so I'm not sure how much is different. And the ending was a little odd. I didn't really care for it overall, but it was short and quick.”
