The author of Nanny Goat and the Seven Little Kids offers a new version of the classic folktale about a runaway gingerbread man.
That popular little character is back looking for friends, in an adventure he’ll never forget. Confident and cocky, the Gingerbread Baby happens upon a bakery, where he dances and prances in front of a sugar cookie girl, trying to make friends. But she just stares and doesn’t say a word, like all the other sweet treats he tries to meet. Discouraged, the Gingerbread Baby runs home, chased by a long line of hungry creatures, where Mattie has a fantastic surprise for him—gingerbread friends that fill a giant fold-out page.
One day, a kindly neighbor gave Snipp, Snapp and Snurr some money to spend. They went straight to the bakery to buy some gingerbread–and fell right into the batter!
