Josh Funk's 10th Book Celebration!

Hansel and Gretel will not listen to their storyteller. For one thing, who leaves a trail of bread crumbs lying around, when there are people starving? Not Hansel, that's for sure And that sweet old lady who lives in a house made of cookies and candy? There's no way she's an evil witch As for Gretel, well, she's about to set the record straight--after all, who says the story can't be called Gretel and Hansel? It's time for these wacky siblings to take their fairy tale into their own hands. So sit back and enjoy the gingerbread

With laugh-out-loud dialogue and bold, playful art (including hidden search-and-find fairy-tale creatures), this Hansel and Gretel retelling will have kids giggling right up to the delicious ending.

 

During the day, Josh Funk writes C++, Java Code, and Python scripts as a software engineer, which he's been doing for the last 20 years. In his spare time he uses ABC's, drinks Java coffee, and writes picture book manuscripts such as Lady Pancake & Sir French ToastThe Case of the Stinky StenchDear Dragon, and more. Josh graduated Suma cum Laude from the UMass Amherst Commonwealth College with a degree in Computer Science. He is a board member of The Writers' Loft in Sherborn, MA and the co-coordinator of the 2017 New England Regional SCBWI Conference.
