Very, very good. Did you know that "Hansel and Gretel" got adapted into an opera by composer Engelbert Humperdinck (not to be confused with the English pop singer). There's is an aria sung by the witch that I did that you might like.

Loving the witch! I like that her chin is not symmetrical--a small detail, and something I probably would not have thought of.

I have this theory that the stepmother may have also been the witch. I can't quite connect the two together entirely--but both the witch and the stepmother refer to the children as "lazybones" when waking them up in the morning. Also, the stepmother has apparently died while the children were away but there is no explanation as to how or why.

Anyhow--beautiful and creepy rendition. Don't trust that witch, kids.
