First Stories: Hansel and Gretel is the perfect introduction, for young children, to this classic fairy tale.
Push, pull and turn mechanisms bring the story to life and introduce the main characters: Hansel and Gretel and the witch in the woods – not forgetting the delicious gingerbread cottage! This well-loved fairy tale is beautifully imagined for a new generation by children's illustrator Dan Taylor.
Little ones can collect more books in the First Stories series, including Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, and Sleeping Beauty.

Dan works in a number of different media, including traditional painting techniques combined with digital. He obsessively collects mid-20th century and Scandinavian furniture, drinks tea by the gallon and lives with a mischievous little dog called Bertie.
