Hansel and Gretel is the story of two children who are very poor. Their father is a woodcutter who is very poor and they often do not have enough to eat. The interesting story starts when the second wife of the woodcutter decides that the children should be left in the deep forest so that they cannot find their way home. The children are clever and the parents' plan fails when they find their way home. However, they are not so lucky the second time and cannot find the way home.
They have a great adventure in the forest as they run into a village. The story becomes very thrilling as they try to escape the witch's house, who wants to eat them.
I like this story a lot and the characters of Hansel and Gretel are clever and smart as they think of plans to get out of any problem they are in.
