Another hair-raising adventure inspired by a Brothers Grimm folktale, Brother and Sister. A shadowy witch, a cursed hunter--it's tricky business for Sol and Connie as they face off against this pair from the ancient Grimm folktale. The kids were almost eaten by the witch from Hansel and Gretel, and this time it doesn't look any better. It's a long way through the accursed valley, they're running out of food and water, and that lodge on the mountain side with the collection of animals inside isn't exactly comforting. Who can save them? The All Creatures Manager? A heroic woodthrush? The Camper Lady? The Know-It-All Cube? Or will they have to save themselves? And here's the worst of it: little do Sol and Connie know that the ancient hunter is about to wake up--thanks to the witch's curse.
