Description de l'ouvrage

13 février 2007
From the creators of THE NIGHTINGALE, an exquisite edition of another Hans Christian Andersen classic tale of dark adventure

"Left, right! Left, right!" A soldier is marching home from war when he meets a witch who says, "What a fine sword you have, and what a big knapsack! Now I’ll show you how to get as much money as you want." Fortune is fleeting for the soldier until he learns the secret of the witch’s tinderbox and her three eerie dogs, each with eyes bigger than the last. With each strike of the flint, a dog materializes to grant him his wish, and the soldier doesn’t hesitate to take advantage of this gift — at a high cost to the kingdom. Spun with wit and clarity, Stephen Mitchell’s wonderfully fresh retelling is paired with Bagram Ibatoulline’s richly detailed illustrations, creating a stunning collectible edition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful rendition of Anderson's tale 27 novembre 2001
Par Regina Doman - Publié sur
Whoever reviewed this book in "editorial" needs to have their eyes examined. Grotesque watercolors? Inept humor? What are they talking about? This is the FIRST version of the Tinderbox by H.C. Anderson, one of my favorite fairy tales that I've really found to be pleasing. The three dogs with humoungous eyes are delightfully fantastic, and the hero and heroine well rendered. The more bloodthirsty and amoral elements of the tale are changed (ie: the soldier doesn't lop off the witch's head but instead traps her in a deep pit) to its improvement, IMHO. Warhola's watercolors are cheerful, fairly realistic, quite appropriate for the lighthearted and rambunctious story.
A great introduction to an exuberant tale for the young, especially for boys. It's not a wimpy fairytale by any means, even if there is a princess and kissing at the end. Warhola and Thompson do a commendable job. Should be reprinted!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazon, you've got the wrong reiews attributed to this book! 30 novembre 2007

This version of THE TINDERBOX is engaging and lovely. The illustrations are captivating and the storytelling wonderful. For some reason, the reviews Amazon has posted list Moser as the author and puts the story after the Civil War. I don't know which book they're referring to, but it's NOT this one.

I was lying in bed thinking about a story that I read as a young girl and all I could remember was it had three dogs and a tree in it when suddenly The Tinder Box title came to mind. Amazon came to the rescue - what a pleasure to read it again!

I loved this story since I was a kid. I had a comic book of it that as been gone for years and am now glad to have this back. A very nice story.

My grandchildren received this book through a membership with Stuart Brent's Children's Book Club in Chicago. I read it with them and all were thoroughly engaged in the story. A discussion followed about the dogs. Were they really bad or just made to be bad? My granddaughter was most interested in the dog's role. Providing great literature for children is vital. I thought the illustrations extraordinary as well.
