Hansel and Gretel by Roberto Piumini, Anna Laura Cantone

Hansel and Gretel wander through the woods as they try to find their way home. Suddenly, they spot something peculiar — a house made of candy! As they nibble on the sugar-covered windows, a strange old woman opens the door. She invites them inside, promising them more good things to eat, but what the old woman has in mind is anything but sweet.
