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!
