About This Book
Famine has struck, and the father is persuaded by a frowsy stepmother to ditch
their children in the woods. She dies by the time Hansel and Gretel find their
way out, after killing the witch. Browne presents jarring, poignant touches
through his surrealist eyetrees claw their way to the sky, Gretel's knees are
grimly unwashed, the oily-looking wallpaper in their home is cracked and
peeling. If the family's poverty of other versions has an aura of romance, this
book shows a grinding, terrible hungerfirst for food and then for happiness. It
is an unforgettable, moving vision.
