Hansel and Gretel by Neil Gaiman and Lorenzo Mattotti

“Hansel and Gretel astonishes from start to finish . . . The book itself is a gorgeous and carefully made object . . . Their rendition brings a freshness and even a feeling of majesty to the little tale.”
—New York Times

“If this isn’t the definitive edition of ‘Hansel and Gretel,’ it’s absolutely necessary. . . . The swirling lines look as though they might start moving if seen at just the right moment. The pictures have inspired Gaiman to write some of his most beautiful sentences. . . Grimm version is as frightening as a bedtime story gets, but this version will scare people in new ways, and some of those people may need to start drawing right away.”
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
