Tony Ross, who has already produced modern retellings of traditional tales such as "Red Riding Hood" and "Goldilocks", has created a new and illustrated version of the popular fairy-tale "Hansel and Gretel", which nevertheless remains true to the original Grimm. Other works by the same author include "Super Dooper Jezebel", "Oscar Got the Blame", "Stone Soup", "I Want My Potty" and "Foxy Fables".From School Library Journal:
As with his other giddy retellings of familiar stories, Ross preserves the bare bones of the story line but embellishes it with imaginative details. A father who shouts "Sweetie-pies!" when reunited with his children, a witch who calls Gretel a "silly sausage," and a money-loving swan are among Ross' distinctive characters. The language makes this a delightful read-aloud, particularly for children who already know the traditional story. The rosy-cheeked, snub-nosed children and sharp-featured gray villains will be familiar to Ross' fans. Here he also uses line to create texture and a sense of grim darkness, a technique he has not used in his previous works. Children will enjoy the cameo appearances of cats and mice that indicate other stories are going on. The book is a good contrast to other less traditional versions, such as Anthony Browne's Hansel and Gretel (Knopf, 1988). --Barbara Chatton, College of Education, University of Wyoming, Laramie
