Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Maria E. Gentle
This book is the old tale of the gingerbread boy who comes to life illustrated in muted colors, yet bold drawings. When an old couple cannot have children of their own, the old woman bakes a gingerbread boy. Once baked, he escapes from the oven and from home. As he runs away he exclaims: "Run don't stop. You can't catch me. I'm the Gingerbread Boy." In his trek he encounters a cow, a horse, and some farm workers. Last but not least, he meets the sly fox. When the Gingerbread Boy comes to a river that he cannot cross because he cannot swim, the fox offers to help. We all know what follows. A very nice rendition of the old tale, which children will love to read again and again. The illustrations are very child friendly and fit the text nicely. This is a suitable book for any elementary and preschool library, and can be enjoyed in a group or shared by two.
