Illustration Friday 'Trail'


When I saw the title for this week's Illustration Friday I immediately thought of the story of Hansel and Gretal and the trail of bread that the children leave to show them their way home. This story has been written and illustrated so many times, I checked some of them out, here are my faves...


I love Jen Coraces' illustration's. The lovely book is available here

  6. this is one of my favorite books, since my father read me this book, I always want to obtain the version with the alternative end, in where Hanzel and Grettel don't kill the witch, they Buy Kamagra to her and all live happy forever.
