The True Story of Gretel 
by Ela Lourenco 


Come and see

Why not have a taste?

Tantalising sweet treats

Sugary scented clouds

Go on, have a try

That one was made just for you

Each one unique

Each one a different design

There you see,

Didn’t I tell you

Now wasn’t that good?

You look a little pale

All of a sudden

Oh dear, don’t you worry

Come in through

To my back room

There’s a good little girl

Now why don’t you lie down

Next to the other greedy little

Girls and boys to rest

I will come get you when the oven is ready…
