Hansel and Gretel!
My Hansel and Gretel takes place in the late 60's. Hansel, a cynical sulky 11-year old, despises his little sister, who acts like a cute baby even though she's like, 8. So they're both obnoxious in their own special ways, but they only act like brats in hopes of winning their dad's attentions (he's not around too much). And then...enter the evil stepmother! The plot thickens!
