The story of Hansel and Gretel is interweaved with several other lesser known fairy tales. As they travel their road sometimes they are together and sometimes they are apart. Interspersed through the stories are bits and pieces of the author's opinions and advice.

What an awesome take on fairy tales. I loved how the author interweaved Hansel and Gretel into the other tales and I am now very curious as to how close the author was to the orginal tales. I loved the auhtor's little asides. I thought they were a great way to break up some very dark stories.
