From White as Milk, Red as Blood: The Forgotten Fairy Tales of Franz Xaver von Schönwerth, Knopf Canada

The mother brings her child to visit it's godmother. They arrive at the house but she finds a snake in place of the bell pull, the broom and fireplace poker dancing together on the stairs, and the godmother with her head in her lap, picking at lice. The girl does not wish to eat the food the witch has laid out for them. "At which point the witch stood up and screeched, “Eat, you pig! Or I will rip you in pieces!”

 Death’s-head hawkmoths are never named in “The Witch’s Head,” but for a story containing motifs of "Fantasia" and “Sleeping Beauty” it seemed fitting. A new mother and her baby enter the godmother witch’s hive only to be offered a chilling choice of food or eternal sleep.
