Hansel and Greta: A Fairy Tale Revolution
by Jeanette Winterson
It takes a lot more time for anything to grow than it does for anything to be chopped down.
Greta lives with her brother Hansel on the edge of a great forest – a forest in danger of destruction. GreedyGuts, their aunt, doesn’t appreciate Hansel and Greta’s plans to replant trees and save the forest. In fact, she thinks they’re horrible little vegetarians. And so she hatches a plan to get rid of the meddling, do-gooder kids… deep in the wood.
With her trademark subversive and comic eye, Jeanette Winterson retells the classic tale of Hansel and Gretel.
