I asked myself lots of questions, like what did Hansel and Gretel say to their father when they finally made it home?

What I Did in the Holidays . . . is an imaginative retelling of the classic fairy tale Hansel and Gretel. Originally featured in Hilary McKay's Fairy Tales, this short story is sure to capture the imagination!

From the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize-winning storyteller Hilary McKay and featuring black-and-white line and tone illustrations from the talented Sarah Gibb.
