A Message from the Match Girl by Janet Taylor Lisle (1997)



Paperback in Good (G) condition. Light signs of wear. Please see our guide to book conditions for more details.

Nine-year-old Walter has no memory of his mother, who died when he was a baby, yet Walter is sure she is speaking to him. The voice of her ghost comes softly to him at first. . .almost like thoughts running through his head. Then, magically, she speaks more clearly, leading him to a sad statue of the Little Match Girl in the park where his picture had been taken when he was a baby. When he finds mysterious items from his infancy left at the foot of the statue, he believes the Match Girl has the magic power to reveal the secret of who he is--and who his mother was. Yet it takes Walter's own powerful imagination and a little help from Juliette, the cat, for Walter to make a most amazing discovery.
