Anna Sartin said:
Gretel and her mother talk about breakfast, Punch and Judy and egg custard. Gretel is scolded by her mother (along with her brother) for carelessly letting their donkey into the house. The witch talks to Gretel and her brother about her house, food, her poor eyesight and the story "Sleeping Beauty". After her evil nature is revealed, the witch repeatedly orders Gretel around and scolds her for not working fast enough until Gretel eventually defeats her.
