The Little Match Girl

Please choose a format above.

This is the tale of The Little Match Girl - Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Match Girl, that is, not to be confused with Bram Stoker’s The Little Match Girl or the Spike Lee Joint Match Girl 6.

True to the original, The Little Match Girl is a heartwarming Christmas story of one child’s brutal struggle for survival against impossible odds. Ho ho ho!

Enjoy a warm mug of cocoa while this penniless orphan dreams of an extravagant gift, like a crust of bread or a leather shoe to boil. But don’t worry, it all turns around when Santa appears to show the girl bizarre magical visions of dancing snowmen and toys and family members who are long gone and… oh no. Oh dear. This thing isn’t going in a Zindy the Swamp Boy direction, is it?

Please  open your heart and spare some pennies for The Little Match Girl, she ain’t doing so good!
