Classic Childrens Tales Collection Hansel and Gretel is a popular fairytale of German origin. The best known version is the one told by the Brothers Grimm in their collection of folk tales published in 1812. It tells the story of a young brother and sister who outwit the witch who had taken them prisoner in her house and escape her evil clutches. The piece shows Hansel and Gretel at the entrance to the witchs little house, made of chocolate, cookies and cakes of all shapes and sizes, and other appetizing candy that encouraged the children to enter it. Worth underscoring is the loving gesture of the two siblings, holding hands and looking tenderly at one another.
