Format: Paperback
from the HOPSCOTCH book series.

From the back cover:-

'Everyone knows that Hansel and Gretel were locked up by a wicked witch. But is it true?

The witch has quite a different story.......'

.......and it is a variation that keeps you wondering right to the very end!

32 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Illustrated throughout, this delightful book is further enhanced by relevant facial expressions.
Numbered pages with clear, easy-to-follow text.

Example of text:-

`This is my house.
Isn't it beautiful?
The walls are made of gingerbread and the roof is made of toffee.
I decorated it myself with all my favourite sweets.

I suppose you have read the stories about me.
They are all untrue, you know.
I'm not really a witch. I'm just a harmless old lady......'

And that harmless old lady goes on to paint a rather different picture of those dreadful children, called Hansel and Gretel, but is she telling the truth?
All in all, a clever way to attract discussion in older readers, familiar with the original, with the appearance of characters from other well-known stories to keep a general interest, too!

`HOPSCOTCH has been specially designed to fit the requirements of the National Literacy Strategy. It offers real books by top authors and illustrators for children developing their reading skills.'

There are a number of `HOPSCOTCH' stories to choose from and these are listed on the very last page.

This is a retake of the famous tale of Hansel and Gretel from the notorious witche's version of events. Who do you believe?
