Sometimes the things that seem sweet and innocent are the most dangerous. A cottage made out of candy, for example, might just be a hungry witch’s trap. That is what Hansel and Gretel learn, to their horror, after their cruel stepmother turns them out into the forest to starve. Now they will have to work together and use all their cleverness if they want to defeat the witch and escape with their lives. This retelling of the well-known children’s story comes to life with beautiful illustrations.
