Tinder

TinderTinder by Sally Gardner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A dark dream-like fairytale that examines love and the horrors of war. Tinder is an exquisitely designed book, filled with a beautiful poetic prose, and amazing angular black and white (and red) illustrations that interact in unique ways with the text. The story, inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s Tinderbox fairytale, which I have yet to read, was a real page turner and the atmosphere is so strongly conjured by Sally’s individual and distinctive way of describing the world, and the the graphic quality of the illustrations, that it stays with you long after you finish reading.
