In this mischievous and utterly original debut, Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story and into eight other classic Grimm-inspired tales. As readers follow the siblings through a forest brimming with menacing foes, they learn the true story behind (and beyond) the bread crumbs, edible houses, and outwitted witches.

Fairy tales have never been more irreverent or subversive as Hansel and Gretel learn to take charge of their destinies and become the clever architects of their own happily ever after.

Why we love it~
This fractured tale is so full of Grimm-like adventure and discovery, Hansel & Gretel overcome adveristy time and again. This is a book that can be read and enjoyed on many different levels and leaves us with lots to talk about.

Ages 10 & up.
