New Twist on an Old Fairy Tale
It’s always been a bit of a joke, since Gretyl started dating him. When your names are Ansel and Gretyl, you have to have a bit of a sense of humor about it. What isn’t funny, is the fact that her father doesn’t approve of twenty year old Ansel for his seventeen year old daughter. After much thought and discussion, the young love struck duo decide to strike out on their own, and Gretyl runs away from home with Ansel to his granny’s house deep in the woods. It doesn’t take long for Gretyl to see that something is wrong. When Ansel tells her the whole truth about his granny and himself, it turns out to be a tough cookie to swallow.
Gretyl and the Witch is a modern day retelling of the classic fairy tale, Hansel and Gretyl. Darker paranormal elements and a more adult theme make this a great read for any age.
Parallels between the original child's tale by the Brothers Grimm, and this modern day retelling are weaved throughout the short story. Although not brother and sister, we of course have Ansel and Gretyl, who end up in the woods together intercepted by the strange and beautiful Edona. Nothing is quite what it seems once they step food into the house in the woods.
