it was amazing

This is Hansel and Gretel, but not necessarily how you know them. This is the complete story, and a lot happens to them after they bake the old witch in the oven. Lots of blood, body parts getting cut off, people getting turned into animals. Oh, and a trip to Hell and a dragon.

With a strong narrative voice similar to Lemony Snicket, the narrator guides the reader through the complex and traditional tales of Hansel and Gretel as the Grimm brothers originally told them - full of gore. This will make it appeal to many students, both younger and older.
