The Gingerbread Witch – Book Feature

The Gingerbread Witch #MySillyLittleGang

Lately, I have come across so many retellings of different fairytales. And I am absolutely loving them! In this post, I am featuring the book The Gingerbread Witch by Alexandra Overy. This is a delightful twist on the classic story of Hansel and Gretel: and this time, they’re the bad guys. Keep reading to find out more about it!

The Gingerbread Witch – Book Feature

Maud has grown up in a house made of gingerbread, wanting nothing more than to be a witch like Mother Agatha. But just like all of Agatha’s gingerbread creations—from the magical house to the chocolate mousse squirrel—Maud will turn back into crumbs if anything ever happens to Agatha.
This seems unthinkable…until Hansel and Gretel, a pair of witch hunters, push Agatha into the cottage’s oven.

The Gingerbread Witch #MySillyLittleGang

To save herself and the other creations, Maud will have to go into the dangerous forest of the Shadelands to find the First Witch’s spellbook. But with witch hunters on her trail and others interested in the book for their own means, can Maud bring back the only mother she’s ever known…or will witch hunters capture her before she can save her gingerbread family?

The Gingerbread Witch is available on Amazon and from your favorite bookseller.
