Brief Summary: Mama has been taken by a fox. Two chicks trained in the art of jujitsu come home to find Papa missing as well. They discover a feather and go to look for him carefully dropping breadcrumbs as they journey into the forest. They come across a house made of cornbread and start pecking at it not realizing until it is too late that it belongs to the fox. He captures Hensel putting the chick into a crate with Papa. Gretel attacks and everyone escapes the fox.
Comments: This is a fractured fairytale with bold illustrations full of energy. There are two sisters instead of a brother and sister. Both boys and girls enjoy these fractured fairy tales in my school library. If you like this one, there are more in the series:
