Hansel and Gretel PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Hansel and Gretel free pdf Once upon a time there was a poor woodcutter who lived near a great forest with his wife and his two children. The little boy was called Hansel, and the little girl's name was Gretel. So begins this classic Grimm tale of two innocent children, abandoned in the forest by their cruel mother, who happen upon the enchanting gingerbread house of the wicked witch. Hansel's cunning and little Gretel's courage foil the witch's evil plan to fatten them up and eat them, and in the best fairy tale tradition they and their loving father live happily ever after. DD's elegant stylized illustrations provide an intriguing new interpretation of this childhood favourite, a satisfying story of evil punished and goodness rewarded.

About Jacob Grimm

Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Carl Grimm (1786-1859) were born near Frankfurt, Germany, and both became teachers at Gottingen University. They originally published their fairy tales as a scholarly examination of German folklore, but the stories were soon being read to children, and when they saw the first English translation in 1823, with its handsome woodblock illustrations, they created a selection of the most popular tales in an edition for young readers. ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR Dorothee Duntze was born in Reims, France. She studied art at the Ecole des Beaux Arts Decoratifs in Strasbourg. Her books for North-South include The Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Emperor's New Clothes, and The Twelve Days of Christmas.
