Hans Christian Andersen, Rachel Isadora
The Little Match Girl
(Puffin Books Sept. 24, 2001)
, Reprint edition
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)
