Review by School Library Journal Reviews

K-Gr 3?A wacky, witty warning to wicked witches everywhere. In his irreverent version of the classic tale, Marshall finds levity in the grimmest of situations and his candy-bright illustrations are as enticing as a house made of gingerbread. An absolute treat. (Dec. 1990)

Review by Publisher Summary 4

Beloved author James Marshall--creator of George and Martha--puts a hilarious twist on a classic tale in his retelling of Hansel and Gretel. Abandoned in the woods, what will Hansel and Gretel - so innocent, so vulnerable, so deliciously plump - do when they come face-to-face with a dastardly, ugly, over-dressed witch?
