I loved the idea of seeing the story from the little boy. The book is split into three parts: Frederik, Little Match Girl and Frederik again. The second part is true to the original tale with a few minor details changed. You still see the little match girl lighting each match and seeing the visions. You still see the little match girl's passing and her journey into heaven. However, what Maguire's version gives you is what happens after the little match girl's death. You see her father and sisters mourn and continue living without her.
