Hansel & Gretel

Publisher: Two Hoots

Willow is a good witch, and it’s the horrendously naughty Hansel and Gretel who wreck her house and her magic spells.

As well as gobbling all Willow’s yummy food, they also smash her potion bottles – and even change her cat so it’s the size of a house!

A delightful twist on the classic fairy tale.
