Hanzel & Gretel by Bethan Woollvin
From Peachtree Publishers:
This clever retelling of the classic fairy tale will have young readers wondering who’s the real villain, from New York Times Best Illustrated Book-winner Bethan Woollvin.
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 bread crumb 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…
Author-illustrator Bethan Woollvin, creator of the New York Times Best Illustrated Book Little Red, delivers a subversive retelling of “Hansel and Gretel” which features striking and humorous visuals and a deliciously wicked twist ending that is sure to surprise and delight.
