The following is a fragment from something that I’ve been working on, which is a kind of steampunk retelling of a very old children’s book. Fairy tales are worked through many of the scenes; this one is a bit more broad than most.
CHAPTER 22: THE WITCHES HOUSE
When they came closer, they saw that the house was made of bread, and the roof was made of cake and the windows of sparkling sugar.
