Hansel and Gretel

Hansel and Gretel lived with their father in a small cottage in the woods. They were poor, but happy.

One day, their father gave them each a piece of bread for a snack. “Go into the woods and collect lots of berries,” he said.

The children wandered the forest and picked berries until their pails were full. As the sun went down, the two realized they were lost.

“How will we get back?” asked Gretel.

“Don’t worry,” Hansel said. “I left a trail of bread crumbs for us to follow home.”

The children searched the ground for Hansel’s trail of crumbs. All they saw were birds pecking at the ground.

They wandered the forest all night trying to find their way home.
