Fortune is fleeting for the soldier until he learns the secret of the witch's tinderbox and her three peculiar dogs, each with eyes bigger than the last. With each strike of the flint, a dog appears to grant him his wish, and the soldier doesn't hesitate to take advantage of this gift—at a high cost to the kingdom. Beautifully illustrated, this comic graphic fairy tale captures the imagination of readers of all ages and inspires a love of reading. A must-have classic for your digital library!
