I'm trying to remember the name of this story that I read when I was little. It was about two little girls, maybe sisters, and they go into the woods. One of them gets lost, and she's eating roots and berries, and the wood get very wild. She finds this hut where an old man lives, and he let's her eat his food and sleep in his bed, and he has a very nice garden. I remember the book had fantastic illustrations, and some of the pictures had these giant red roses. Anyone recognize this who could tell me the name of this story?

All I can think of is Hansel and Gretel, although this sounds like it has a nicer ending...

I suggest going into the library and asking there, you're more likely to get a better answer.

is there a bear involved? if so, it may be Snow White and Rose Red. I think there is a forest involved, and roses...hope this helps :)

Yep, I was thinking EXACTLY what dreamofdancing thought.... especially about the woods, and those big red roses in there....

Did a little bit of googling:

Sounds like Snow White and Rose Red to me as well.

I had that book as a kid, and it did have the most amazing beautiful illustrations. I loved it. I lent it to someone, and I never got it back :(
