REVIEW: Hansel And Gretel By Bethan Woollvin

BOOK: HANSEL AND GRETEL

AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATOR: BETHAN WOOLLVIN

PUBLISHER: TWO HOOTS

PAGES: 32

AGE RECOMMENDED: 4+

Growing up, we all loved fairy tales. Often the story was scary, or the woman needed some help to make things work for her. Betha Woollvin wrote these two books with a twist and there was no scary part or the characters can save themselves.

The usual story in Hansel and Gretel comes with a bad witch and the children outsmart them. Woollvin brings a big twist where the witch is a very good woman, but the kids are mean and brutal. The witch is really patient with all their tantrums, but at one point, she loses her cool, and she turns them into cookies.

The illustrations are done in the same style as Bethan Woollvin’s other fairy tale retellings. With beautiful illustrations, this book is another standalone one. Readers will delight in this re-imagined version of Hansel and Gretel. It is funny, provides an interesting perspective, and is told in a strong voice.
