Hansel and Gretel

Deep in the forest lives a witch named Willow. She is a good witch, who only uses good magic — until she meets Hansel and Gretel. Willow never used to worry about messy breadcrumb trails. Or entire portions of her gingerbread house being devoured. Or anyone fiddling with her spells and magic books and causing a ruckus. But Hansel and Gretel are two very naughty and very rude children, and they are trying Willow's patience.

This subversive and deliciously wicked retelling of Hansel & Gretel from Bethan Woollvin, creator of Little Red and Rapunzel, features her signature striking and humorous visuals, and a twist ending that is sure to surprise and delight.

"A new version of the Grimms’ tale, told from the witch’s perspective.... [Hansel and Gretel's] mischief culminates in the children’s shoving Willow into an oven so they can have the house to themselves, and then they destroy it. Magical Willow emerges unscathed — and finally angry. A wordless spread depicts her with the children in a cooking pot and ingredients and cooking implements (including gingerbread-cookie cutters like those depicted on the case cover) surrounding them. The final image, like all the rest rendered in a limited black, orange, and white color palette and a bold, graphic style, depicts a gingerbread girl and boy on a plate: Hansel and Gretel have gotten their just deserts by becoming dessert for Willow, who 'wasn’t ALWAYS a good witch.' Delicious." — Kirkus Reviews
