Fickle Fortune is sometimes on our side, sometimes not, as a soldier called Jacob knows well. A chance meeting with a witch makes him fabulously rich.

Later, when all that remains of his wealth is an old tinderbox, he discovers this to be magic, and so he becomes rich again. Then his love for a princess brings him before the executioner. Will this fairy tale by Denmark’s Hans Christian Andersen end well? Read this book with original pop-up illustrations by celebrated artist Vojtěch Kubašta to find out!
