I am nine years old and think this rhyming version of Hansel and Gretel is so much fun and different from other Hansel and Gretel stories. It’s easy to read and understand and I also like this book because the drawings are super cute and so far the cutest in the series but the story itself is still a bit scary. Most people know that Hansel and Gretel’s parents were so not helpful to them when there was not enough food, that the parents put them in danger leaving them in a forest that they ended up coming across a scary witch that wanted to eat them.
Well, I think it’s a sad and scary tale but the tale has an important message that is really good for kids like me. It teaches us that we can be in danger and sometimes parents can’t help us and that maybe some strangers like the witch might or might not be a good person so we have to be careful just incase. And that we can use our smarts and be brave to help ourselves and others just like Gretel, who I think is the hero in this story. =)
I can’t wait to read the next book in this series and I think others should know about the meanings in tales like these because if all kids thought everyone was good more bad people could hurt us because we didn’t know and that would be very bad for us. =(
So tales like this can be super helpful !!
