I found a few different examples of Hansel and Gretel illustrations, and I just wanted to share them because they are so sweet.
First, we have this illustration from "Favorite Bedtime Stories" illustrated by Miss Elliott, from 1943:
Eloise Wilkin's illustrations in this Little Golden Book:
And another Little Golden Book, this one also from 1943, and illustrated by Erika Weihs:
Look at the cute little house, and the smiling sun on the title page!
I love it.
(Finding these has given me an idea: How about a Tim Burton version of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm's original story - you know, a live-action fantasy type of thing like Alice In Wonderland? Although it doubtless would not be a saccharine-sweetened version of the story like those in these vintage books, it sounds like a good idea to me!)
