Saucy and Bubba: A Hansel and Gretel Tale

Saucy and Bubba: A Hansel and Gretel Tale

by Darcy Pattison

For the reader who likes retellings of fairy tales, this Hansel and Gretel story updates the step-mother/child relationship.

In this modern-day Hansel and Gretel story, Saucy and Bubba struggle to get along with Krissy, their alcoholic stepmother. One freezing cold night, Krissy locks Saucy out of the house and Saucy must sleep in the barn. In a desperate move, Saucy and Bubba run away to their aunt’s house–except Aunt Vivian isn’t home. Trying to take care of Bubba for several days forces Saucy to take charge of her own life and accept a terrible sacrifice in order to find safety for herself. This is a heartbreakingly simple story that weaves through the tangled threads of a family and builds to an ending full of hope.
