A poignant and suspenseful retelling of a classic fairy tale set in a war-torn world In the last months of the Nazi occupation of Poland, two children are left by their father and stepmother to find safety in a dense forest. Because their real names will reveal their Jewishness, they are renamed "Hansel" and "Gretel." They wander in the woods until they are taken in by Magda, an eccentric and stubborn old woman called "witch" by the nearby villagers. Magda is determined to save them, even as a German officer arrives in the village with his own plans for the children. Louise Murphy’s haunting novel of journey and survival, of redemption and memory, powerfully depicts how war is experienced by families and especially by children. "Lyrical, haunting, unforgettable." —Kirkus Reviews "No reader who picks up this inspiring novel will put it down until the final pages, in which redemption is not a fairy tale ending but a heartening message of hope." —Publishers Weekly From the Trade Paperback edition.

Pity poor Streptococcus - it should be a piece of cake for a fairy godmother to tell the story of Snow White but her wand is bent and things aren't going quite as they should. Then, to make things worse, she's interrupted by a couple of English policemen who are hot on the trail of two very devious and dangerous criminals - children who are causing no end of trouble in the forest. Their names? Hansel and Gretel! Streptococcus doesn't believe a word of it and neither do a well-behaved pair of kiddies in the audience who volunteer to help her tell Hansel and Gretel's familiar tale. But before everyone lives happily ever after, the police insist on having their say and the well-behaved kiddies aren't happy about that at all... Since there are lots of parts (10 for girls, 5 for boys, and 10 for either), everyone gets a role and since a single forest set is all that's needed for this 60 minute show, it's easy to produce. This is a great fun twist on the familiar, favorite tale.

Was nun folgt, ist ein Märchen. Ein Märchen?, wirst du vielleicht denken. Märchen sind doch Kinderkram! Doch in diesem Märchen hüpfen keine kleinen Mädchen mit roten Kappen fröhlich durch den Wald. Was zwischen diesen Seiten auf sie lauert ist die wahre Geschichte von Hänsel und Gretel – ein Märchen voller dunkler Zauberer, gefährlicher Hexen und todbringender Drachen. Dieses Märchen ist vielleicht furchterregend, sicherlich blutig und definitiv nichts für Angsthasen; aber anders als alle anderen Märchen, die du kennst, ist dieses hier wahr. "Adam Gidwitz schafft es, die gruselige Gewalt, die in den alten Märchen der Brüder Grimm enthalten ist, mit wunderbar viel Humor und einem großartigen Gespür für Spannung auszubalancieren [...] Er webt Grimms Märchen zu einer einzigen Geschichte mit Hänsel und Gretel als Hauptfiguren zusammen und das macht er so gut, dass man nach der Lektüre davon überzeugt ist, dass die alten Geschichten so und nicht anders erzählt werden sollten." RICK RIORDAN Autor der Percy Jackson-Serie Dieser Titel wurde auf der Leipziger Buchmesse prämiert und mit dem Leipziger Lesekompass ausgezeichnet!
