Publisher's Description

The New York Times raves, "Hansel and Gretel astonishes from start to finish" while Kirkus Reviews declares, "If this isn’t the definitive edition of Hansel and Gretel, it’s absolutely necessary."

Best-selling author Neil Gaiman and fine artist Lorenzo Mattotti join forces to create Hansel & Gretel, a stunning book that’s at once as familiar as a dream and as evocative as a nightmare. Mattotti’s sweeping ink illustrations capture the terror and longing found in the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Neil Gaiman crafts an original text filled with his signature wit and pathos that is sure to become a favorite of readers everywhere, young and old. The stunning deluxe edition features a larger size (9.125" x 12.625"), 60 pages, plus a die-cut cover with high gloss cover all around.

Editorial Reviews

If this isn’t the definitive edition of "Hansel and Gretel," it’s absolutely necessary.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

I love Gaiman’s and Mattotti’s Hansel & Gretel. The writing is rich. ("They went so deep into the old forest that the sunlight was stained green by the leaves.") And the art is striking. I have never seen a more chill-inducing rendition of the witch's gingerbread cottage. I swear it looks like there's a skull atop it.
—Julie Danielson, Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast

Some books you’re excited about because you like the author and you know what to expect. Others are exciting because you like the author and you have no idea what to expect. That’s the case with this TOON Books version of Hansel & Gretel written by Neil Gaiman.
—Travis Jonker, 100 Scope Notes
