    I've heard it told with a wood fairy, Zeus, a witch... I used to use it for differentiated reading lesson. I'd re-written several versions at various reading levels, blah, blah, blah.

    Late at night, with all of us huddled in their giant king-sized bed, my grandfather would tell his own version of the story with spooky sound effects and voices. Lovely memory!

  • ^ Bahahaha! Hilarious! I had only heard of Hansel and Gretel. Thankyou for sharing the other two! (Or three, haha)

    My fave is the "Snow Queen" by Hans Christian Andersen. A MUST READ.
