    A funny spin to the original Gingerbread Boy

    I am a huge fan of the Gingerbread series. This book is not only engaging but unexpected as well. I purchased this book to read to a 1st grade class for an education class. They loved it!! It has the same theme as the traditional Gingerbread Boy; however, the characters and events have a cowboy spin to them. I loved it and was very pleased. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

    I also took this book and expanded it into a math unit. After we read this in class and other Gingerbread versions, we compared and contrasted the stories. To have some more fun, we made flap jacks like the man and woman did in the book. The helper of te day, wore a gingerbread apron and hat, measured and mixed the pancake mix, and then I cooked up some delicious flap jacks! The kids Loved it, and I will definately save this activity for a future thematic unit!!

    A western twist on a classic tale. I love books that can take an old, beloved story and give a unique interpretation of it.

    The Gingerbread Cowboy is beautifully illustrated in warm, earthy colors that add to the atmosphere of the book.

    Children will laugh at the gingerbread cowboy's antics and his narrow escapes from almost everyone.

    One of the things that I appreciated the most about this book is that it did not stray from the original concept of the story. Sure it takes place in the desert, but the gingerbread man still meets his match in the coyote. I enjoyed the way the author was able to modernize the story without changing the basic plot.
