Hansel

and Gretel

By The Brothers Grimm

Once upon a time...

A very poor woodcutter lived in a

tiny cottage near the forest

with his two children, Hansel and Gretel.

Their mother died when they were young,
this made Hansel and Gretel very sad.

Soon their father remarried but their stepmother was very cruel.

took the children deep into the forest...

All day long

she led the

children deeper

into the woods.

Before long she

had abandoned

Hansel and Gretel.

But as they went

into the depths of

the trees, Hansel left

a trail of crumbs on

the mossy green ground.

At a certain point, the

two children found they

really were alone.

He looked for his trail of crumbs, but the little

boy had forgotten about the hungry birds that lived in the forest.

They flew along behind him and in no time at all,

had eaten all the crumbs.
