Holly Hobbie brings to life a favorite spooky tale from childhood.

When a woodcutter and his scheming wife abandon Hansel and Gretel in the forest, all hope is lost until they come upon a cottage made of tasty sweets. But the owner is not the kindly old woman she pretends to be. Can Gretel save Hansel from the clutches of a hungry witch? Holly Hobbie’s masterful watercolors reach new heights in this spine-tingling rendition of the tale, faithful to the beloved classic.

Praise

Praise for Hansel & Gretel:
*"Neil Gaiman and Lorenzo Mattotti's version of Hansel and Gretel may be a current darling, but Hobbie's version is as harrowing, if not more"
Publishers Weekly, starred review
" Hobbie's stripped-down retelling of "Hansel and Gretel" maintains a high degree of fidelity to the classic fairy tale, while her illustrations reveal a rich array of artistic influences on her visual interpretation of the story.... A fine addition to the fairy-tale shelves."
