Hansel and Gretel are the children of a poor woodcutter. When their mother died, their father married another woman, who became their step-mother. However, the step-mother hates children, and therefore convinced her husband to abandon his children in the woods, where they will starve to death or get eaten by wild animals. The woodcutter at first did not want to abandon his children, but the step-mother told him that they will die otherwise. Gretel, who heard the step-mother's intention to abandon them, started to cry, but Hansel, her brother, comforted her by saying that he will find a way to save themselves. When their father and step-mother were asleep, Hansel collected shiny pebbles and put them in his pocket, so they will be able to go back home. In the morning, the step-mother woke them up, and while they were walking, unknown to the parents, Hansel scattered the pebbles on the road, so he and Gretel will be able to find their way home.
Once upon a time a very poor woodcutter lived in a tiny cottage in the forest with his two children, Hansel and Gretel. His second wife often ill-treated the children and was forever nagging the woodcutter. There are too many mouths to feed! We must get rid of the two brats," she declared. And she kept on trying to persuade her husband to abandon his children in the forest. Maybe someone will find them and give them a home. Hansel who, one evening, had overheard his parents' conversation, comforted Gretel.
