re you familiar with this picture?

The first time I saw this picture I thought it must be a sweet love story, but actually it is a story about a big brother and a little sister. They are Hansel and Gretel.

Hansel and Gretel are young children whose father is a woodcutter. His wife decides to take the children into the woods and leave them there to be by themselves, so that she and her husband will not starve to death. After the parents have gone to bed, Hansel sneaks out of the house and gathers as many white pebbles as he can, then returns to his room, reassuring Gretel that God will not forsake them. The next day, after their parents abandon them, the children wait for the moon to rise and then they follow the pebbles back home.

Once again the stepmother orders her husband to take the children further into the woods and leave them there to die. Hansel and Gretel attempt to gather more pebbles, but find the doors locked and find it impossible to escape from their parents' house. Hansel takes a slice of bread and leaves a trail of bread crumbs to follow home. However, after they are once again abandoned, the children find that birds have eaten the crumbs and they are lost in the woods.

After days of wandering, they follow a beautiful white bird to a clearing in the woods and discover a large cottage built of gingerbread and cakes, with window panes of clear sugar. Hungry and

tired, the children begin to eat the rooftop of the candy house, when the door opens and a "very old woman" emerges and lures them inside, with the promise of soft beds and delicious food. They comply, unaware that their hostess is a wicked witch who waylays children to cook and eat them. Actually, she is going to eat them when they are fat.

She prepares the oven for Hansel, but decides she is hungry enough to eat Gretel, too. But they use their wise to escape from the witch and kill her. Arriving home, they find only their father; his wife died from unknown causes. And then with the witch's wealth, they all live happily ever after.

This is the whole story I want to share with you. And at last I’d like to give my best wishes to you all and have a good day. Thank you for your listening!
