This storyboard does not have a description.
NEAR a great forest there lived a poor woodcutter and his wife and two children; the boy's name Hansel and the girl's Gretel. They had very little o bite or sup, and once , when there was a great dearth in the land, could not even gain the daily bread. (Grimm 1)
One night the two children had not been able to sleep for hunger, and heard what their step-mother had said to father. Father was worried about their hunger and future. Step-mother answered "We will take the children early in the morning into the thickest part of the forest and leave them, and we shall be quit of them" Gretel began to fret, but Hansel promised to manage something. (Grimm 1/2)
When the day was breaking, the wife came and awakened the two children, "Get up, you lazy bones, we are going into the forest to cut wood" She then gave each one a piece of bread and said that is all they would have to eat. Hansel gave his loaf to Gretel because his pockets were full of flint he would drop to guide them home. Then they set off all together into the woods. (Grimm 2)
When the children found their way home the step-mother then tried to lead them into the woods once more, giving them less bread then before. Hansel crumbled the bread and threw crumbs the whole way into the forest. When the step-mother finally left them, they waited until dark to return but could not find any breadcrumbs. And so they wondered for three days until coming upon a house built with bread, cakes, and windows made of sugar. "We will have some of this" said Hansel. (Grimm 3/4)
As the two ate parts of the house, an aged woman came out and spoke "Ah my dear children how come you here? You must come indoors and stay with me". The children agreed and were fed good meals and given beds. The old woman although her behavior so kind, was a witch and built the house to entice kids like them. And so one morning she grabbed Hansel and led him into a stall to lock him up. She fed the best meals to Hansel for fattening for eating. While Gretel ate only crab shells. (Grimm 4/5)
Each morning the old woman visited Hansel and felt his finger to to see if he was fat enough to eat yet. Hansel however held out a little bone and the witch wondered why he remained thin. When four weeks passed the witch could wait no longer. "Now then, Gretel" she cried "draw water; tomorrow I will cook Hansel" When instructing Hansel to get into the oven, Hansel said he did not know how. Angered, the witch demonstrated and Hansel pushed her in. The two escaped with treasures and left her to burn. After walking through the woods they came upon their house and father, the step-mother had died and they lived happily ever after with their treasures. (Grimm 5/6)
