Out today – Funny Fairy Tales 4 – Hansel and Gretel

 

It's official! Funny Fairy Tales 4 is finally out!!! And it's got an evil, evil witch.

 

Hansel and Gretel are in way over their heads!

 

You know this story... or do you? 

How about a little twist? 

Read the story of Hansel and Gretel as never told before! 

With their little brother Charlie who gets everyone in trouble, because he can’t stay away from Chocolate. Meet the most surprising wicked witch in the world and the most brave brother and sister in history.

 

Who is Charlie?

Charlie is Hansel and Gretel's little brother, who gets everyone in trouble, because he cannot stay away from chocolate. In every Funny Fairy Tale there is a special character that adds colour - that's Charlie. He's so loveable and so easy to relate to, because he has a big flaw... and everyone is trying to help him.

 

What inspired the witch in Hansel and Gretel

I first set out to think of a very disgusting wicked witch, but I realised that might not be good enough... so I decided to go for a more delicate option. Don't want to give any spoilers, but the interaction between the witch and the kids reveals her true nature.

 

Is Hansel and Gretel inspired by your own life and my love for hiking?

Absolutely. Hansel and Gretel are the kids of an army commander, who insists they are experts in navigation, but this is not what makes the story tick. Obviously. It's Hansel's leadership and Gretel's sense of responsibility, and their love and courage in saving their little brother that makes this story what it is.

Let the tale begin!
