Summary
A retelling of the well-known tale in which two children are left in the woods but find their way home despite an encounter with a wicked witch.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The first Grimm tale illustrated by 1998 Caldecott medalist Paul O Zelinsky is once again available in hardcover Originally published in 1984 Zelinsky s paintings for Hansel and Gretel are as compelling as his later work and will captivate readers with their mysterious beauty emotional power and brilliant originality Each spread brings to life a world as rich and real as our own detailed colorful sensual yet filled with the unearthly shadowed magic of the Hansel and Gretel folktale Whether portraying the fear and anguish of children abandoned by their parents the delicious sumptuousness of a candy house or the joy of being reunited with one s family the artist captures the subtle nuances of emotion and the tactile quality of the physical world with exquisite accuracy and elegance The hauntingly spare retelling of this perennial favorite by the poet Rika Lesser perfectly complements the vivid storytelling of Zelinsky s artwork Once again this gifted artist gives us a unique interpretation of a beloved fairy tale allowing us to both see it anew and rediscover its eternal truths
