The Eye of the Warlock
Forty years after the frightening adventure of Hansel and Gretel, their young cousin discovers a much deadlier enemy deep in the forest.
"This is the wonderful continuation of the classic fairy tale Hansel and Gretel. With the occasional witty use of figurative language, Catanese does a great job creating his own believable world rooted within a classic. This is a great middle to high school read, as it shows a wonderful emotional journey and character growth." - Children's Literature (at Barnes and Noble)
"It is creepy, thrilling, sensitive, and even a little romantic… trust The Eye of the Warlock to make you see a well-known story in a magical new way!" - Mugglenet.com

Many years have passed, and Hansel and Gretel are long gone. Now Rudi, a hot-tempered boy, lives in the same rundown house, along with his cruel Aunt Agnes, his oafish Uncle Hempel, and two little sisters that the family has taken in. When his aunt and uncle abandon the girls in the woods, Rudi rushes in to save them. This is just the beginning of a perilous adventure, as Rudi comes face to face with the unspeakable, ageless evil that lurks in the heart of the forest.
In the author's opinion, this is the scariest of the books...though The Mirror's Tale is pretty close! You can get a copy in bookstores now or online at these sites:
