Hansel and Gretel
Poverty-stricken parents abandon their children in the forest to avoid their own starvation—at the mother’s suggestion. Hansel and gretel find a house made of bread, which, it transpires, is a trap created by a child-gobbling witch. gretel is forced to help fatten her caged brother and boil the water to cook him in.
When the witch tries to shut her in an oven, gretel overpowers and kills her. the children steal all the witch’s jewels and return to their father, as their mother died while they were out.
The moral of the story
children cost a lot to feed, but you should still do it. Stealing is okay if it’s from a child-gobbling witch. killing witches is also fine.
