In this version, Hansel and Gretel are told by their parents to go out in the forest to find strawberries for their family to eat. While in the forest, they become hungry and eat the strawberries. They then become tired and sleep until the dark night arrives. When they awake, they find that they have no idea where they are. As the they try to find their way out of the forest, they run into a castle. The witch who owns the castle capture Hansel and Gretel. In the end of the story, Hansel and Gretel destroy the witch and save all of the children that have been captured by the witch.

Of all the Hansel and Gretel themed books that I have read, this was my least favorite. This version was vey simple and there was not much detail given the the text or illustrations. The illustrations were simple colors with no features. The only features that were illustrated were the witches eyes. The text was also very simple and the story was changed very much from the original tale.

This version is written for a young audience.
