No one is more the advocate for making sure fairytales exist in children’s lives than me so I continue the trend of featuring fairytale books on my blog. As promised earlier in the week Anthony Browne has reared his talented head again in the tale of Hansel and Gretel. I love the continuity Browne’s illustrations in all of his books and the simplicity of his drawings makes way for the beautiful prose. Whilst the dark tale remains the same, the illustrations have been given the thrill of modernity to allow children to observe the story through the pictures.
The tale of Hansel and Gretel stayed with us throughout our childhoods so it’s nice that we can share this classic tale with a new generation but through their adapted understanding and comprehension of a modern world.
