Waterstones Says

A blazingly brilliant and fearlessly feminist reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen's iconic fable from the master storyteller of Letters from the Lighthouse and Escape to the River Sea.

Longlisted for the Yoto Carnegie Medal for Writing 2024

It only takes one strike: A powerful feminist reworking of the Hans Christian Andersen classic, from bestselling and award-winning creators Emma Carroll and Lauren Child.

Bridie works hard to feed her family, selling matches on the streets of Victorian London. After an incident leaves her with only three matches left, the magical strike of each one sees her tumble into visions of a brighter future. Realizing she has the power to change her own fortune, Bridie leads the match factory workers out on strike, achieving the remarkable through their unity and courage.

A defiant and empowering retelling of the classic you thought you knew, based on real-life events, this stunning collaboration brought to life in glorious spot colour introduces a bold new heroine for future generations to treasure.
