Hansel and Gretel Book Review
A famine decimates a magical realm, and the family of ten-year-old Hansel and his little sister face starvation. Their parents decide that the best hope for all of them against almost certain death is to abandon the children deep in the forest, but Hansel leads Gretel home by following a trail of pebbles that glow in the moonlight. Still desperate, their parents prevent Hansel from finding more pebbles, and then they abandon the children even deeper into the forest, where they become thoroughly lost. Hansel and Gretel follow a white bird to a shack in the woods and fall captive to Petra, an evil witch, who fattens Hansel for slaughter. Hansel tricks Petra into thinking he isn't fattening, then pushes her into the oven—only to discover that they may not yet be out of danger.
My Review : ❤❤❤❤❤
I really enjoyed reading the retale of henzel and Gretel. It even has some of the old take included and I really liked that. I loved this story when I was little and I still enjoy it to this day.
The new adventure they go on but the ending is still about the same and I loved how the author did that. Very well written story and you should definitely pick this book up if you love fairytales and also if you like fairtales that have been rewritten as well. Definitely recommend this story. Can't say enough on how well written this was.
