    Hansel & Grettel

    written by Grimm & illustrated by Monique Felix
    hansel and grettel

    Hardcover book

    Hansel and Gretel is a terrifying fairy tale, and this book doesn't cover up the universal nightmare: that a parent would deliberately abandon a child. These beautiful illustrations capture the fear of the two children. Words and pictures show that Hansel is the protective older sibling at first, but when the witch locks him up, it's Gretel's courage (as well as Hansel's cunning) that saves them. This is not a book for the very young, but it will lead to some great discussions among older kids studying heroes and monsters.
