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 was surprised that this was a quick read. It would make a good bedtime story for older children (9-12).
