Who is nibbling at my little house? - Hansel And Gretel
Water-colour illustration ...When they approached the little house they saw that it was built of bread and covered with cakes, but that the windows were of clear sugar. "We will set to work on that," said Hansel, "and have a good meal. I will eat a bit of the roof, and you Gretel, can eat some of the window, it will taste sweet." Hansel reached up above, and broke off a little of the roof to try how it tasted, and Gretel lent against the window and nibbled at the panes. Then a soft voice cried from the parlor: "Nibble, nibble, gnaw, Who is nibbling at my little house?" The children answered: "The wind, the wind, The heaven-born wind," and went on eating without disturbing themselves. Hansel, who liked the taste of the roof, tore down a great piece of it, and Gretel pushed out the whole of one round window-pane, sat down, and enjoyed herself with it. Suddenly the door opened, and a woman as old as the hills, who supported herself on crutches, came creeping out... As recorded by the Brothers Grimm
