The tale is about the little poor girl who is sent out to sell matches, Christmas Eve. She freezes but does not dare to go home, to get warm she strokes the matches one by one, but eventually there are no more left.
The famous and much-loved Danish author Hans Christian Andersen celebrated his 200 anniversary the year 2005.
On this occasion we have published five of his best tales retold for children aged 3-9 years and with new illustrations: Tinderbox, The Little Match Girl, The Nightingale, The Emperor's New Clothes and The Ugly Duckling.
Hans Christian Andersen wrote The Little Match Girl in 1848.
Only a real one would do.
So he traveled through all the world to find her, and everywhere things went wrong.
There were Princesses aplenty, but how was he to know whether they were real Princesses?
There was something not quite right about them all.
So he came home again and was unhappy, because he did so want to have a real Princess.
