The Hansel and Gretel quiz: 10 questions by Jen
Question of the Week: Hansel and Gretel
ONCE upon a time there dwelled on the outskirts of a large forest a poor woodcutter with his wife and two children; the boy was called Hansel, and the girl Gretel. He always had little enough to live on, and once, when times were bad, they had to get by with one piece of bread and butter each.
