The WITCH'S GUIDE TO COOKING WITH CHILDREN by Keith McGowan
A Full-length Hansel and Gretel Novel Spin-off
Hansel and Gretel has been a fairy tale read to children for hundreds of years. Now, it has been recreated in a full-length novel, set in modern times. Eeek! This could be YOUR neighborhood! The witch could be YOUR neighbor! Sol and Connie have replaced Hansel and Gretel who lived happily ever after.
Will Sol and Connie be clever enough to stay out of the oven?
How will Sol use his scientific intellect to outwit the evil witch?
How does a dog become a central part of the story?
Will their dim-witted daddy and evil stepmother finally get what is coming to them?
Where did all these other witchy side-kicks come from? Aren't Sol and Connie going to be outnumbered?
They'll need a cheering section to see them through this time!
Where are the police when you need them, you ask? (Check their i.d. for witchy lookalikes.)
