The Little Match Girl (2016)
Hans Christian Anderson’s beloved tale of "The Little Match Girl" comes to life in this new adaptation by David Warner, beautifully illustrated by Greg Newbold. Originally written as the narration for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s 2016 Christmas concert, Warner’s retelling of the classic story reminds us that having the faith of a child, and showing unremitting love, will lift all who look heavenward for comfort and relief, no matter their circumstances. Set on a dark wintry Christmas Eve, "The Little Match Girl" is a story of a tragically lonely and innocent child, lighting matches in an attempt to stay warm, imagining the best of Christmases in the quickly extinguished light. When a beloved grandmother comes to her rescue, a tale of a life prematurely lost becomes a message of hope and triumphal entry into a place of joy and enduring love.
