Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Grimm's Fairy Tales collection.
Here are some of the most enchanting fairy stories of all time. The Brothers Grimm conjure up a world of fantasy, hope and good fortune where the princess meets and marries the right prince (even if he once was a frog), and where the cruel witch, the arrogant wife and the greedy wolf get their comeuppance. It is a magical world which we must all inhabit at one time in our lives and which are as important in this computer age as ever before.

Audible Editor Reviews

For generations, kids have feared being thrown into the oven by a cannibal witch because of this little story. More fodder for fear, the German fairy tale may have true-life roots in the Great Famine of the Middle Ages. Upbeat music sets the audio-story's folksy tone. Laura Paton's delightful voice is light and airy, complete with an easy British lilt. She animates the characters' voices distinctively and lovingly. The Brothers Grimm version has always been a little scary, but Paton makes it feel warm, too. Adults will enjoy the nostalgia while kids, lucky enough to hear Hansel and Gretel for the first time, will hang on every suspenseful word.
