Ngerbread house and a terrifying witchAt once beautiful whimsical and great fun Will Moses’ adaptation of Hansel Gretel is the perfect way to celebrate this ageless and essential fairy tale. I have found it difficult to find illustrated fairy tales for kids that are written at the right level but also not dumbed down made cartoonish or over sanitized This retelling hit the perfect balance The illustrations are detailed and lovely

The drawings in this book gave me the creeps Also there is a peculiar two paged illustration of Hansel and Gretel being left in the woods by their father and stepmother Now bear in mind that throughout this book we are repeatedly told that this family is STARVING They are on the brink of starvation and it is the argument used by the stepmother to convince the father of leaving his beloved children in the woods in the first place So in the illustration are a large number of LARGE mushrooms within ten feet of the children who are sitting in front of their cozy fire looking worried All right let's suppose these mushrooms were poisonous Let's look down a little bend in the trees and we see several not emaciated deer hopping around And there's a stream Who knows what manner of critters might exist in it Not to mention an entire family of bears including two chubby cubs And if the bears are too ferocious to attempt to capture for food how about that pair of nice juicy looking rabbits in the foregroundThis picture made me hate this book the author undermined the whole premise of the story with it Now all these characters especially the dad look like a bunch of idiots I'm bewildered and annoyed

    Perhaps one of the serious of Grimm's fairytales this time rendered with lovely folk art type images the age old story continues to have the possibility of instilling nightmares into childrenThe five major characters are a weak easily led father a dominant and abusive step mother a wicked witch with an appetite for cannibalism and two children who refuse to stay victimizedWhen the last crumb of bread is nearing the wicked step mother convinces the father to abandon his children in the woods Hansel finds a way to get he and his sister back home Once again they are taken to the woods and left there perhaps to die Finding a gingerbread abode decorated with plentiful candies the hungry children eat away to their heart's content When the witch discovers them she takes them inside Imprisoning Hansel in a cage she tries to feed him so he can be plump enough to eat Gretel continually gives the near blind witch a bone to fool her into believing Hansel is not ready to be devoured Pushing the witch into the fire enables the children to be free and once again to find their way back home The wicked step mother is dead and the father embraces the childrenI've always struggled with this fairy tale Women are portrayed as dominant and prone to kill children while the father is merely noted as helpless and at the mercy of his wife Why children continue to return repeatedly to the place where they were neglected is beyond logic The children are strong and great problem solvers while the father is not able to care enough for his children so he can stand up to the step mother Problematic at best this is dark and nasty I need to understand the Grimm brothers to see how their minds worked

    Hansel Gretel by Will Moses is a fairy tale The age group this is intended for is nursery to intermediate The book is about a poor family; the step mother scolded the father of Hansel and Gretel until he agreed to leave the two children in the woods because they couldn’t afford to feed all four of them The brother and sister were hungry and alone in the woods when they found the gingerbread house They defeated the witch that lived in the house their step mother had died and they took the treasure home to their fatherI liked that the story was so detailed and the children were so clever and resourceful It had the good versus evil plot; and good won The witch and the step mother both die and the children and their father get the witch’s treasure The illustrations are like oil paintings and look like you are looking through a window at everything unfolding I think this book would be good for young readers I think it would good for parents to read to their children and let the children look at the pictures It’s not for beginner readers but it could be an enjoyable tale to read on their own when they are a little older too

    I like the painting of forest and houses I do not like the lack of perspective in the paintings and the oddly sized human beings The story was macabre than I remember it However the calming ending the author writes is comfort enough
