It flew off and the children decided to follow him. It led them to a house. When they came closer, they saw that the house was built entirely from chocolate, with a roof made of cake, and windows made of clear sugar. The children started eating the house — Hansel took a piece of the roof, while Gretel tore down a part of the wall. Suddenly the door opened and an old woman came out of the house.

They went in. The old woman made them pancakes with maple syrup and gave them milk to drink. Just when the brother and sister thought they were in heaven, the old woman grabbed Hansel by the hand, her eyes glittered red and she laughed a creepy laugh.

I will now fatten you up, boy, so that I can eat you. Only then did Hansel and Gretel understand that she was not a nice old lady at all, but a witch! Her eyes were red and she was older than any human alive.

She had terrible eyesight, but a very good sense of smell. No matter how much the children cried, the witch had no mercy on them.

By the end of the month he should have got fat enough to be cooked. A week passed like that — Hansel ate delicious food, while Gretel was always hungry.

She was furious that he was staying so thin. This is the biggest pot in the kitchen; fill it with water to the top! Gretel prayed for a miracle to happen, but when she finished filling up the kettle, the witch helped her put it in the big oven. Then the old woman started the fire.

Please, show me so that I can check the water. Look, you just need to step here and…. Then she quickly closed the oven door. Hansel and Gretel sat down by the fire, and when it was noon, each ate the piece of bread; and because they could hear the blows of an axe, they thought their father was near: They waited so long that at last their eyes closed from weariness, and they fell fast asleep. Why did you sleep so long in the wood?

We thought you were never coming home again.

We will take them deeper into the wood, so that they may not find the way out again; it is the only means of escape for us. Given he agreed the first time it was now harder for him to refuse again, so in the end he consented, but with a heavy heart.

The children, however, had heard the conversation as they lay awake, and as soon as the old people went to sleep Hansel got up, intending to pick up some pebbles as before; but the wife had locked the door, so that he could not get out.

Early in the morning the stepmother came and pulled them out of bed, and gave them each a slice of bread, which was still smaller than the former piece.

On the way, Hansel broke his in his pocket, and, stooping every now and then, dropped a crumb upon the path. We are going into the forest to hew wood, and in the evening, when we are ready, we will come and fetch you. When noon came Gretel shared her bread with Hansel, who had strewn his on the path.

Soon they got so tired that they could not drag themselves along, so they lay down under a tree and went to sleep. At about noonday they saw a beautiful snow-white bird sitting upon a bough, which sang so sweetly that they stood still and listened to it.

It soon stopped, and spreading its wings flew off; and they followed it until it arrived at a cottage, upon the roof of which it perched; and when they went close up to it they saw that the cottage was made of bread and cakes, and the window-panes were of clear sugar.

I will eat a piece of the roof, and you can eat the window. Maybe someone will find them and give them a home.

Hansel who, one evening, had overheard his parents' conversation, comforted Gretel. If they do leave us in the forest, we'll find the way home," he said. And slipping out of the house he filled his pockets with little white pebbles, then went back to bed.

All night long, the woodcutter's wife harped on and on at her husband till, at dawn, he led Hansel and Gretel away into the forest. But as they went into the depths of the trees, Hansel dropped a little white pebble here and there on the mossy green ground. At a certain point, the two children found they really were alone: the woodcutter had plucked up enough courage to desert them, had mumbled an excuse and was gone.

Night fell but the woodcutter did not return.

Gretel began to sob bitterly. Hansel too felt scared but he tried to hide his feelings and comfort his sister. I swear I'll take you home even if Father doesn't come back for us! They crept through a half open window, without wakening their parents.

Cold, tired but thankful to be home again, they slipped into bed. Next day, when their stepmother discovered that Hansel and Gretel had returned, she went into a rage. Stifling her anger in front of the children, she locked her bedroom door, reproaching her husband for failing to carry out her orders. The weak woodcutter protested, torn as he was between shame and fear of disobeying his cruel wife.

The wicked stepmother kept Hansel and Gretel under lock and key all day with nothing for supper but a sip of water and some hard bread. All night, husband and wife quarreled, and when dawn came, the woodcutter led the children out into the forest.Then he went to bed.

Their father was so happy to see them, that he couldn't say a thing and just hugged them for as long as he could. I see no dancing! Hansel went to try and gather pebbles again, but this time the door was locked. Early in the morning the stepmother came and pulled them out of bed, and gave them each a slice of bread, which was still smaller than the former piece.

All right, I'll see for myself. Then Gretel gave her a push, so that she fell right in, and then shutting the iron door she bolted it!
