Times are hard for the poor woodcutter and his wife. But things are about to get even harder for their two children. Their wicked mother, worried she won't have enough food for herself, orders her husband to abandon Hansel and Gretel deep in the woods. Darkness falls in the wood, and the children find themselves lost and hungry in the midst of a great forest. Out of the frying pan and into the fire ... the children make their way to a house made entirely of candy and inhabited by a charming old woman. ... Who turns out to be a witch looking for a tasty meal of some delectable children. In true style, it all turns out right in the end, so it's a fabulous, classic story to be enjoyed again and again.
