Two ordinary children, led into the dark forest and left there by their malicious parents, went on an unwilling adventure. Although their carelessness and appetites initially lead them into danger, they are saved by cleverness, bravery, and loyalty. These fun fraternal socks, in candy colors with the flavor of the witch’s candy house, will keep you warm on your own adventures, woodsy or urban.
