Summary
When they are left in the woods by their parents, two children find their way home despite an encounter with a wicked witch
Review
  • K-Gr 3 –This version of the familiar tale of two clever children who overcome their fears and triumph over evil, while clear and readable, tends toward the lurid. For example, when Gretel pushes the witch into the oven, the text reads: "The old witch burned to death, screaming and howling miserably." Duntze's startlingly imaginative illustrations range from impressionistic to surreal, and vary in size and coloration to match the changing moods of the narrative. The cleverly wrought bread-strewn endpapers set the tone for this stylized picture book. While a few of the images are potentially frightening, most will agree that the illustrations are accomplished and very special, indeed.–Barbara Buckley, Rockville Centre Public Library, NY --Barbara Buckley (Reviewed October 1, 2001) (School Library Journal, vol 47, issue 10, p140)
  • Dorothe Duntze memorializes another fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm with a palette readers can almost taste in Hansel and Gretel. The gingerbread house looks truly scrumptious, the woods seem foreboding indeed. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
