Biographie de l'auteur
Shelagh McNicholas was born and grew up in Liverpool. She went on to study at Kingston University where she graduated with a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design & Illustration. Apart from a short time spent teaching life drawing, Shelagh has always worked as an illustrator as well as being a full time mum to her daughter, Molly.
'The Ballet Class' written by Adele Geras, was Shelagh's first picture book for Orchard Books. Her realistic and endearing illustrations perfectly complement the story of Tilly and her ambitions to become a top ballerina.
Shelagh is passionate about drawing and is happiest with her sketchbook and pencils. Her favourite subject is her daughter and it was her sketches of Molly as a ballerina that inspired her illustrations for 'The Ballet Class'.
Shelagh lives in Surrey with her daughter.--Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

New Year's Eve.
A small, poor girl tries to sell matches in the street.
Already shivering from cold and early hypothermia.
Afraid to go home because her father will beat her for not selling any matches...
There is no mother anymore.
All of the sudden something happen...
This is one the most beautiful, heartbreaking and sad tales I have ever read.
This story is so sad and heartbreaking.

A must read for every reader, young or old! This is one of the most beautiful, yet heartbreaking children's books I have ever read. A poor little girl is forced to go out into the bitter-cold morning of New Year's eve to sell paper flowers and matches. She is dressed in rags and shoes that do not fit. As the day wears on, she has sold nothing and cannot return home for fear that her father will beat her for not selling her matches.
Finding a corner of a building to shield her from the icy wind, evening approaches and she begins to freeze. Striking the matches one-by-one, she see's beautiful visions. But as the matches burn out, her visions disappear. Finally, her grandmother appears in one of the match-lit visions. Before she can disappear, the little girl strikes all the matches she has and begs her grandmother to take her to Heaven where there is no cold, hunger or cruel fathers.
The next morning, the little match girl is discovered dead in the cold corner...wearing a soft, sweet smile on her face.
The book takes only about five minutes to read, but I bought this particular hardcover edition because of the exquisite illustrations, they are truly magnificent. This will make a lovely addtion to your library and will become a cherished family heirloom!
Dawn Kurtz author of the christian novel Secret of the Mexican Doll found on kindle.
Love the colors and soft manner of sketching that brings more sentimentality to a lovely but sad story.
Highly recommend for adults and children alike.
