The story of Hansel and Gretel is one of the most well-known and well-loved fairy tales collected by the Brothers Grimm. However, you’ve never seen it quite like this before. Here, paired with the modern art style of internationally renowned illustrator Květa Pacovská, the tale takes on a stunning new life for a new century. The text includes the complete Grimm Brothers’ tale with all its dangers and suspenseful trickery.
It is a tale of survival, cleverness, perseverance and love. Added to that is the cleverness of Ms. Pacovská’s imaginative, almost abstract art, which lends the story an urgency and an edge you won’t find in other versions of this timeless tale. This is a Hansel and Gretel you'll want to pore over again and again.
