Hansel and Gretel is one of the Grimm Brothers' best-loved fairy tales. This shaped book tells the story of two siblings who brave a night in the dark woods and cleverly defeat a witch who lives in an appealing gingerbread house. Margaret Evans Price (1888-1973) was a prolific American illustrator of fairy tales and children's stories. Her gentle and archetypal style achieves the right balance between the sweetness of the children and the scariness of the witch.

Laughing Elephant of Seattle, Washington began in 1993 and grew from the roots of Green Tiger Press, founded by Sandra and the late Harold Darling in 1969 in San Diego, California. Their sons Chev Darling and Benjamin Darling are honored to be the second generation of Darlings to lead this small, independent publishing house as their family business. Drawing on their parents’ collections of vintage books and ephemera that number in the tens of thousands, they design and print almost entirely in house at 3645 Interlake Avenue North in the friendly Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. Today, our staff consists of three Darlings and two dear friends. Our small but mighty team is dedicated to providing excellent customer service to our retail and wholesale customers alike, many of whom have come to feel like family.
