Woollvin, Bethan

Hansel & Gretel

(2) K-3 In Woollvin's (Little Red; Rapunzel) sly and wickedly funny version of the classic folktale, Hansel and Gretel are unapologetic brats, and Willow is a good witch. The siblings make their way to Willow's gingerbread home in the forest and start snacking on its outsides. Willow invites them in, but their disrespectful behavior only intensifies. Minimalist gouache illustrations use a palette of blacks and grays with vivid orange accents.
