Hansel and Gretel is a well-known fairy tale of German origin, recorded by the Brothers Grimm and published in 1812.
The story follows a young brother and sister who discover a house of candy and cake in the forest and a child-devouring witch.

The Brothers Grimm, Jakob Grimm (4 January 1785 – 20 September 1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (24 February 1786 – 16 December 1859), were German academics best known for publishing collections of folk tales and fairy tales, which subsequently became very popular. Jakob also carried out academic work in philology, related to how the sounds in words shift over time (Grimm's law). They can be counted along with Karl Lachmann and Georg Friedrich Benecke as founding fathers of Germanic philology and German studies.

With stunning graphics and handpicked content this book was specifically designed for little users. Your kids will love the illustrations.

While some may fear exposing their children to the darker elements of this story, it is good to remember that often fairy tales are a good place for children to understand the fears that they live with and a safe place for children to work through those fears.
