  1. View all 10 comments. The mother took them deeper into the woods than they had ever been in their whole lifetime! Their mother dead, by necessity forced to alter their own identities, re-imagined it. The way the author has taken the fairy ta.

  2. The roof was coated with fluffy white icing; pink, sticky syrup drizzled and dripped along the sides of rhe dark chocolate exterior; a gum drop door frame was sopping with sparkling icing sugar; a frothy milk chocolate river flowed under a gingerbread bridge that led to a gingerbread door; and a lollipop garden sat in front of a large crystallized sugar window. I grwtel that this kind of events actually happened and we need to learn about it. I loved how the traditional fairy tale was used as a backdrop, with the imagery of that tale threaded throughout the story. The story was also interesting in that it was set in Nazi-occupied Poland, allowing the reader to see the effects of the war not only on the Jewish people but on the Polish ahd as a whole.

  3. The story begins in the winter of with a family running from the Nazis. Hansel quickly motioned Gretel to hand him one of the bones lying hook the scrap pile. Were there such a choice, which suggests that I in fact finished this dreadful novel. With a sad heart Gretel fetched the water in which Hansel was to be boiled.
