WithMatchless, Gregory Maguire has reinvented the Hans Christian Andersen classicThe 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, theNew 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.
