Ginger in the BreadHOUSE - Crumb cousins approve

Hansel and Gretel is a German fairy tale published in 1812 by the Brothers Grimm.

The Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, there was a woodcutter who lived with his wife (or second wife), and had two children named Hansel and Gretel. Because they were poor and low on food, the mother plotted to abandoning Hansel and Gretel in the woods so that they'd have less mouths to feed, and forced her husband to go along with the plan. Hansel, over hearing the plan, gathers up luminous stones to leave as markers to find the way home. After the first attempt was thwarted, the wife tried again, taking the children even deeper into the woods and giving them a small bit of bread to eat. With no luminous stones this time, Hansel uses the bread to leave a trail of crumbs, only to have them eaten up by the birds of the forest. With Hansel and Gretel now lost, they began to wander the forest until they come across a house made of gingerbread. The children begin eating the house, causing the old woman who lived there, to come out and question them. They tell her that they're lost and hungry, and she allows them inside to eat and rest. The old woman however turns out to be a witch, who captures Hansel and forces Gretel to fatten him up so she can eat him. After a while, the witch grows tired of waiting, and has Gretel get the oven ready to cook Hansel. Gretel cries and tells the witch she's not sure how to check the oven to see if it's hot enough. The witch checks the oven herself, getting pushed and locked inside by Gretel and burning to death. Hansel and Gretel escape and head home, where their father is glad to see his children, and his wife had disappeared after the children were gone.
