Three Brothers, the Baker, and the Bear A long, long, time ago in a far away land lived three brothers, Alexander, Eliot, and Janik. The brothers lived poorly with their old parents in a village named Augusta. One chilly evening, the boys' father requested his sons go out to gather firewood and search for berries. Alexander, the youngest, went on a search for twigs and branches as ordered, while Eliot and Janik ran ahead in a search for food. Five minutes from their home resides the nearest bakery, where Eliot and Janik stole bread from every day. "Forget the berries!" Yelled Eliot. "Tonight we feast on bread and leave mother and father to starve!" As Eliot and Janik were on their way out, they bumped into Alexander searching for leaves along with his twigs. The brothers laughed as they hit the twigs out of his hands and ran out of the bakery in attempt to steal for the last time. The Baker ran after the boys, and caught them all to suffer the consequences.
"Hello, hello, what have we here, is that some bread you have to steal?
I see you come, I see you go, but tonight is a night you shall not know.
For tonight you think you will go on your way, instead, I will give you a price to pay.
These actions you've done will leave you punished, no bread, no berries, to keep you replenished.
I am the witch of Augusta you see, now I order you give all your senses to me!"

Alexander, in utter confusion stared blankly at the witch in disguise. "Oh baker, you must have me confused! For I haven't stole anything, I'm only gathering twigs!" The brothers looked back at Alexander getting scowled, and with drop of sympathy in their minds they turned around. "Witch, leave him alone! He isn't to blame, we were the ones who stole from you!" Eliot shook his head in disapproval as Janik tried to make things right. "Ha-Ha." The witch laughed. "You sir are a liar, How can I tell who's telling the truth now? I see you with those boys, I

She straightforwardly targets the perfect images of fairy tale characters. Yolen suggest that these depictions are unrealistic and that characters of all shapes and sizes can convey the underlined meaning of story plots and ultimately have a happy ending. Yolen tirelessly throughout this poem advocates for the full figured fairy tale character…
