Hansel and Gretel Story



Once upon a time, they lived a brother and a sister named Hansel and Gretel.



Their mother had passed away when they were babies and they lived with their dad in a hut in the forest.

Their dad was trained to earn their living by working as a woodcutter and was looking after the kids at the same time.

A couple of years passed and struggling to juggle work and
two kids at the same time their dad decided to get married again.

The woodcutter's second wife was from a wealthy family and she hated the fact that they were poor and she had to live in a small ruined hut deep into the forest and she also did not like her stepchildren at all.

On a cold winter night as they were getting ready for bed Hansel and Gretel heard their stepmother talking to their dad.

They listen to their stepmom was saying- "how are you going to get through this winter we don't have enough food if you do not get rid of these kids we will all starve to death."

Their dad opposed but their stepmother said furiously- "no need to argue I made up my mind tomorrow we'll take them to the woods and leave them there."

Hearing all this Gretel started to cry her brother Hansel comforted her.

HANSEL SAID: please don't worry Gretel somehow we'll find our way back home. Having said that later that night hansel collected as many pebbles as he could in his pockets.

In the morning they all started to walk towards the forest their father told them that they were going for a family hike.

As they were walking without anyone noticing Hansel dropped the pebbles to mark the way back in the afternoon.

Their dad and stepmother lit a fire and told them that they will be back soon and they walked off and vanished in the woods according to their plan they did not come back.

When the night fell all the horrible sounds of all the wild animals in the forest started to echo around them.

Shivering with the horrifying sounds of the wolves Hansel and Gretel did not leave the fireside until the moonrise.

Then they started to follow the pebbles shining in the moonlight and walk towards home. This was a very clever idea of Hansel.

When the kids came back home their dad was very happy and surprised at the same time their stepmother also acted as if she was happy but deep inside her decision was still the same. She was very upset that they were back.

After three days the stepmother tried to get rid of them again this time at night she locked Hansel and Gretel's door and did not allow Hansel to collect pebbles again.

But Hansel was a clever boy when they were walking to the forest in the morning this time he dropped the breadcrumbs that he had put in his pocket the night before and again made a trail the way back to the home.

Around noon their father and stepmother made up an excuse and went off leaving them all alone in the forest again realizing that they were not coming back.

Hansel and Gretel wanted to start walking back home before it got dark but this time they could not find the trail that they had left because all the breadcrumbs were eaten by the birds.

Gretel started crying and for the first time, Hansel also felt
hopeless as his plan failed distressfully.

This time the kids were really lost with no food and scared to death they wandered around the forest for three days.

On the third day, they saw a bird wider snow the bird chirped songs with its beautiful voice for them and they forgot their hunger for a moment and started to follow the bird.



The bird brought them in front of a funny-looking house this house had walls of bread a roof made out of cake and windows of candy and was covered with colorful cream all around.


Hansel and Gretel Story
Hansel and Gretel could not believe their eyes the house looked incredibly delicious the kids started to run towards the house to have some bite of the house.


Just as they were going to have a bite from the house they heard a voice from inside who is nibbling at my house they looked around and they saw an old lady at the door.

When they told her all about what had happened to them she felt very bad for them and so she let them enter the house. 

The inside of the house was very different from the outside it was dark scary and it didn't feel right but because they were so tired and hungry the kids did not care much.

The old lady brought all kinds of food and desserts for them and the kids ate food that they hadn't had before that night they slept on the softest bed they had ever seen.

When they woke up in the morning the old lady wasn't there they started to look around at the end of the corridor they saw a small door when they opened the door they found cases full of gold and treasure inside.

They were very surprised which was quite obvious. Hansel wanted to get in and take a closer look right at that moment they heard her voice again.

OLD LADY SAID: And what do you think you are doing. 

When they turned around the kids faced the witch standing right there in front of them. Apparently, the old lady was a witch leading that kids to her dungeon with a house covered with cake and candy.

The kids tried to run away but the door was locked. The which pulled Hansel by the head and locked him in a cage then she dragged Gretel to the kitchen.

THE WITCH SAID: Your brother is dead skinny cook some food for him and make him fats when he is in good shape he will be a delicious meal for me but don't you dare eat anything all the food is only for him.

Having no choice Gretel did what she was asked for.

fortunately, Hansel was a clever and wise boy he decided to trick the evil-hearted witch.

Every night when the witch was asleep he was digging a hole in the ground of the cage, on the other hand, the witch was
controlling Hansel every morning to see if he gained weight or not.

But Hansel wasn't eating anything his sister cooked instead he was burying them in the hole that he dug.

In the meantime, the witch was telling Gretel to cook more and this went on for days.

Suddenly one day out of frustration the witch said- "fat skinny I don't care anymore today I will make Hansel pie." 

She then turned to Gretel and said- "look in the oven to see if the dough is baked enough."

Although she was in fear Gretel was also a wise girl just like her brother she understood that the witch was going to push her in the oven.

GRETEL SAID: I can't get my head in there and to see the dough.

The witch pushed her aside and stuck her head inside the oven. Gretel gathered all her strength and pushed the old witch into the oven and close the oven door.

Gretel knew where the witch was hiding the keys. She ran straight away and saves Hansel from the cage. The flames from the oven covered the whole house.

Hansel and Gretel ran away from the burning house into the woods but they did not know where to go a and while later they came across a river a giant Swan took them one by one to the other side of the river.

The kids looked around and suddenly they realized they were not as much far from their home. After some time of looking here and there finally, they can see their home.

They ran home as fast as they could seeing his kids' father was full of joy.

Their father explained to them how their stepmother had gone back to her parents house soon after they had left them in the forest and else felt sorry for all that he did.

The kids loved their father very much so they forgave him but another surprise was waiting for their father.
