The Queen had a heavy foot and always stepped on her own hems, so every evening Frederik’s mother reached for her basket of threads, all wrapped tightly on wooden spools. EVEN ON CHRISTMAS EVE she plied her needle. Humming sentimental melodies of the season, she stitched while Frederik washed up. As soon as she nodded off over her scissors, Frederik scampered up the ladder to his attic. THE ROOM reeked with the salt tang of the sea and the sweet rawness of the smokehouse. He didn’t mind; this was his room, to which his mother in her exhaustion could never manage to climb.
THEN HE CARRIED both girls up the ladder, to share with them his secret town, whose population had enjoyed a marked increase over the past year. — …UNAWARE THAT high above them, even in the daylight, exists a population of stars. The end A NOTE ON MATCHLESS and Its Inspiration, “The Little Match Girl,” by Hans Christian Andersen Already a success in 1843, Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen wrote “The Little Match Girl” (“Den lille pige med svovlstikkerne”) at the invitation of an editor who supplied a selection of illustrations for inspiration.
And her father, living so high above the warehouse, would never have heard her knocking. He had been out of his mind with work and worry, tending his two babies, who squalled with the consumption that had already claimed his wife and now, it seemed, had stolen his daughter, too. When Dame Pedersen arrived, puffing from the effort, she covered Frederik’s face with her apron while grim-eyed men carried the girl’s body away for a pauper’s burial. FREDERIK’S MOTHER motioned that it was time to leave, but then she caught sight of one of the sick babies, grey as bad bacon in the morning light.
