A western twist on a classic tale. I love books that can take an old, beloved story and give a unique interpretation of it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
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.
