The family was running low on food so the parents had a discussion. The wife, not really loving her children, said, "Why don't we just take the children out to the forest, leaving them only a bit of bread and a fire and then leave them there all by themselves?" The man exclaimed, "Why, we couldn't do that! The children are my dearest treasures!" The wife reminded him of how little food they had so the man reluctantly agreed.
Hansel and Gretel were unable to fall asleep and overheard their parent's conversation. Gretel started to cry, and Hansel tried to comfort her but it was no use, she was too upset. Hansel, being the smarter and older of the two had a brilliant plan.
After a few months, the family was running low on food, and once again Hansel and Gretel overheard their parents talking. They crept over to the door to look for more pebbles but itthe door was locked.
The two children where very scared and dropped their pieces of candy. The witch-like woman said to them, "Don't be afraid my dearies, come in and I will give you a place to stay and a very tasty meal."
The witch ordered Gretel to make Hansel a big, fattening meal for she said she was going to eat him for dinner. When Gretel came over to where her brother was locked up she told him what the witch had said. He told her to get him a thin twig for he had a plan. She quickly fetched one for him.
The witch decided that even though Hansel was very skinney he would have to do, for she was becoming impatient. She lit the oven, then decided to cook Gretel too, so she asked her to look in to see if the fire was ready. Gretel smartly replied she didn't know how to check it. The witch said, "You silly girl, all you have to do is stick your head in like this." The witch leaned in closer.
