    " I read this to my class. The illustrations were beautiful! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Logan | 2/6/2014

    " We've been reading folk & fairy tales lately, both for the entertainment and the cultural reference. While Logan didn't enjoy Sleeping Beauty, he really liked Hansel & Gretel. It was interesting to read it to someone who had no idea what was going to happen and had never heard the names. He thought it was very funny when the old witch said, "Nibble, nibble nubble, who gnaws my house to rubble?" A year ago, when he was almost 6, I think this would have scared him. But at almost 7, he was riveted by the story but not scared. The illustrations by Zelinsky are beautiful, as his always are. The witch isn't too creepy looking. The house is amazing, with its pancake roof and candy stained glass windows. "

    " I especially, like the artwork in this unique captive story. It's my opinion that the folktale could suffice purely on the Paul Zelinsky's illustrations alone. They speak volumes! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tricia | 1/14/2014

    " Each page reveals a work of art by Zelinsky...Lesser's re-telling is perfectly delivered. By far, one of the best versions of this fairy tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 12/14/2013

    " Beautiful illustrations, true to the original Brother's Grimm tale, and it's the perfect length for my 6 six old. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maribel Boland-delgado | 11/19/2013

    " What a scary story to read to children but the ilustration are so vivid. Take time to explain the lesson while reading this to your child. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cara | 11/18/2013

    " This story is horrible! I forgot most of the details. The parents abandon the kids in the woods, the owner of the candy house is a cannibal who wants to eat the children, and Gretel shoves her into the fire. Yikes! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ana Monnar | 11/13/2013

    " Hansel and Gretel retold by Rika Lesserthe is the first Grimm tale illustrated by 1998 Caldecott medalist Paul O. Zelinsky. The illustrations are beautifully and creatively crafted. The story is sad, scary, and has a happy ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taleda Crafter | 10/4/2013

    " Well, after reading this book, I realized that this may be a good story to use in order to talk about social class and how it affects families. It would also be good to talk about orphans. Overall, this classic is still a good one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaitlyn | 9/21/2013

    " Im not sure that the story offers too much in terms of moral value, but it is an intersting tale that has many versions. but through every version on thing is always the same: it plays off of a childs fears. third grade appropriate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 1/27/2013

    " Definitely the original twisted version--mom wants to get rid of the kids by dumping them in the woods, the witch wants to boil and eat Hansel--scary for real little kids but Adam liked it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alley Denney | 1/24/2013

    " This is such an old folktale story. I still find it a little demented with the idea of the witch wanting to perform cannibalism. But, overall it's not too bad of a story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lan | 10/13/2012

    " This is a great version of the classic of the Hansel and Gretel story. The illustrations in this book were very detailed and captivating! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lacey Mcmanaway | 11/21/2011

    " This is a classic folklore story. Reading this story as an adult I realized that is a rather graphic story for children. However, this story shows sibling bonds and the importance of not giving up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darci | 8/20/2011

    " This has always been a disturbing tale. But I'm partial to the version(s) from my childhood, so I didn't like the changes this one introduces. Of course, beautiful pictures! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 9/18/2010

    " Zelinsky's depiction - done possibly with a Flemish feel - of this story is beautiful with its moody and pale-light and earth-tone illustrations - I think the reviewer who called them "dark and foreboding" is correct. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 6/21/2010

    " great illustrations. kids loved it and didn't want to return it to library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan D. Neal | 4/10/2010

    " Need I say more than this is one of the best retellings paired with the best illustrations of this folktale? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 6/7/2009

    " Taken from the original Grimm telling of this fairy tale- it had a few differences from what we are used to hearing, but the pictures are gorgeous! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 2/22/2009

    " The classic story but with the most gorgeous illustrations you will ever see! It won the medal. Any books with Paul O. Zelinsky as the illustrator are absolutely beautiful!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eireanne | 1/20/2009

    " I really like the illustrations, it's the style I like...like it could be in a museum, very nice to look at, and an ok version of the text. I like the explanation in the back of where the story was first heard and the details that were added, much like the "history" of the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donalyn | 11/14/2008

    " Based on original versions of the classic tale first collected by the Brothers Grimm. Includes historical background in the back. "
