Synopsis:
Reader, beware.

Warlocks with dark spells, hunters with deadly aim, and bakers with ovens retrofitted for baking children lurk within these pages.

But if you dare, follow Hansel and Gretel as they walk out of their own story and into the wilds - where magic, terror, and a little bit of humor shine like white pebbles lighting the way.

Come on in.

It may be frightening, and it's certainly bloody, but, unlike those other fairy tales you know, this one is true.

Once upon a time, you see, fairy tales were awesome.

Review: This isn't the fairy tale you grew up on - the saccharine sweet happily ever after - this is the real  grim tale. Follow the breadcrumbs - and body parts - that Hansel and Gretel leave behind on their travels.

This is a very humorous and hair-raising fairy tale! Definitely not like the ones most of us were raised on - it's better!! I enjoyed every minute of this, unfortunately quick, read. Give it a try if you're ready to know the 'true' story of Hansel and Gretel.
