The true tale should end like this! Fantastic!
Ahhh! This is so cute! I love the ending!

I like this version of The Little Match Girl so much more!!
So terribly cute. Happy New Year!
Wonderful. I loved the happy ending. You art work is amazing. Happy New Year.
It is such a cute story with lovely pictures. It is so heart touching. Have a happy year ahead.
This is a much more suitable ending! I love this story but to this day I can't help but tear up when I read it!
Best version of the Little Match Girl ever! Thanks - I wish my mom had internet to see it (she may, soon have a new computer) but I'll tell her all about it when I call her today.Have a great new year!
Wonderful, Yasmine. Thanks for this!I was curious about the original story, which I never heard of until I read people's comments, so I Googled it and happened upon the 2006 Disney animated version... and I almost started crying at work. >_<I love that version (Watched in numerous times now because the ending just blows me away!), but at least your version won't leave me crying in the fetal position.Anyway, Happy 2013!
Well, I actually DID cry at work, right at my desk with tears dripping down my face. The original story was so, so sad, but this ending is wonderful. Yasmine, you're terrific! Keep 'em coming!
This is a MUCH better ending to this story! ^_^ I never really liked the "Little Match Girl" as a child, and I still disliked how unfortunate the ending was with little message or point aside from "being a homeless orphan sucks." Thanks for improving it.
Thank you! I love the new ending
Better than the original! Thank you!
I love this story, because of the other comments I checked out the original match girl story. Man it was really sad, but I love yours better it gives a message of hope!
And they lived happily ever after :)Happy New Year, Yasmine!
This is a great revision of the original story. The ending is so much better. Once again, thank you for creating a wonderful diversion from the rigors of daily life.
I'm a cat lover and i your blog is wonderful !
I remember this story from when I was little. This version is so much better.
Awww such a wonderful ending (#^w^#), that's very nice...
I love that old story, but I love your ending too. :3
The panel with the cat running away in the snow... reminds of the book "Katie's Kitten". Is this a little homage to that book? The red handkerchief, the snow, the cat... I can't help but think of that book!
In my head, she adopts the little girl and trains her to be the next generation cat lady.I love the vision of grandma getting confused.
So lovely ! a better version of the original indeed:)) I wish you and all you cats a wonderful happy NEW YEAR :)
I like you ending so much better!Happy New Year!Purrs
Happy New Year too!!!!hope you have a great days all these year!! :)
Very sweet! I know it's late, but Happy New year to all!
This Post reminds me of the book "gypsy girl's best shoes" which was my favorite children's book growing up. It makes me smile.
Cudowne :)Wszystkim kociarzom, kotosympatykom i kotolubom Szczęśliwego Nowego Roku!agarfieldka
I'd never heard the original story. I figured it just turned the idea of the classic, "It followed me home, can we keep it?" on its head. :)
Oh so sweet!
That is how I always wanted it to end!!!!
very touching story thank you
I teared up...I had never seen the original, then I looked it up and I couldn't hold back my tears...

Thanks, I cried :')
The cat old lady needed human company too :) as used to be with those lovely people. Thank you, so beautiful :,)
Aw! I like this ending better :)
I am crying. My first reaction was "Not the Little Match Girl!" and then you did this with it. Thank you for giving her a happy ending.
I'm so happy that the cat found her before the people would. I really like this story. :)
Me encantan tus versiones gatunas. Tienes en mí a una nueva fan.Gracias
This always makes me smile for the rest of the day!
This is sweet :)
You made me cry. Thank you.
The original story traumatized me as a little kid with how cruel and random the world truly is. I still remember reading it at age six and realizing the only thing separating me from a homeless orphan starving and freezing to death on the street was pure luck. Pure chance. Terrifying realization as a child.Your version is so much happier and calming. Also demonstrates the open and selfless love that animals give people. The kitty led the Little Match Girl towards something warm fuzzy happiness, even though it was humble. It keeps the original "appreciate what you have," while toning down the cold Victorian classicism and bleakness. Sometimes that is need, especially now when we are returning to that age. Love your work.
