SurLaLune Fairy Tales: The Annotated Hansel and Gretel

They didn’t awake till it was pitch dark, and Hansel comforted his sister, saying: “Only wait, Gretel, till the moon rises, then we shall see the bread-crumbs I scattered along the path; they will show us the way back to the house.”

When the moon appeared they got up, but they found no crumbs, for the thousands of birds that fly about the woods and fields had picked them all up.

“Never mind,” said Hansel to Gretel. “You’ll see we’ll find a way out.”

But all the same they did not.
