After reading Habibi, I was eager for more illustrated stories. This, a retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Tinderbox, wasn’t in the same league.
First of all, the lines felt very stilted. Maybe it’s to create a certain atmosphere, but it makes it harder to get into the story. This does make it feel a little like you have found a story, instead of picked a book from the library.
Potential, but not enough. Maybe something for someone who loves fairy tales in any shape or form.
