Anno is a boss... but this was my least favorite of his books.
Feb 21, 2012 June rated it 4 of 5 stars
Recommends it for: shadow requests and alternate match girl story
Recommended to June by: Polly

A much more palatable retelling of the Little Match Girl. (I was horrified by the fairy tale as a child.) Maybe I can hand this out if I think the parents are pushing the fairy tale on too young a child.
