Every night, tiny stars appear out of the darkness in little Sandy’s bedroom. She catches them and creates wonderful creatures to play with until she falls asleep, and in the morning brings them back to life in the whimsical drawings. When a mysterious new girl appears at school, Sandy’s drawings are noticed for the first time, but Morfie’s fascination with Sandy’s talent soon turns into something far more sinister.
Hans Christian Anderson | JooHee Yoon | c.2016 Enchanted Lion Books
In this graphically bold re-telling of Andersen’s tale, Yoon renders the journey of the one-legged tin soldier from the moment of creation to his untimely end. Foregrounding the random and the accidental, Yoon’s version captures life as the struggle between the inner spirit and fate.–back cover
