An ingenious retelling of the classic fairy tale that will have young readers wondering who the real villain is. From New York Times Best Illustrated Book-winner Bethan Woollvin.

"Delicious." ―Kirkus Reviews

"Wicked fun." ―The Horn Book Magazine

Deep in the forest lives a witch named Willow. She is a good witch who only uses good magic―until she meets Hansel and Gretel.

Willow never used to worry about messy breadcrumb trails. Or entire portions of her gingerbread house being devoured. Or anyone fiddling with her spells and magic books and causing a ruckus. But Hansel and Gretel are two very naughty and very rude children, and they are trying Willow's patience.

This subversive retelling of "Hansel and Gretel" from Bethan Woollvin, award-winning creator of Little Red and Rapunzel, features striking and humorous visuals and a deliciously wicked twist ending that is sure to surprise and delight.
