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.

Irresistible images inside the confectionery and outside in the snowy Swiss countryside will delight Jan Brett fans.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2

Brett's highly detailed, luscious illustrations do a fine job telling this story for nonreaders, while readers and listeners will enjoy Gingerbread Baby's energy and enthusiasm. The roly-poly youngster lives in a gingerbread house in the bedroom of a boy named Mattie, but longs for fun and adventure. While Mattie is too busy in the kitchen to play with him, the Gingerbread Baby heads to the village to look for a friend of his own. He finds some good prospects at the bakery but ends up being chased by a mouse, followed by the baker and his wife, and eventually a red fox. The riotous run brings him back to Mattie's house where he finds an elaborately decorated cookie and candy village with a lot of gingerbread friends for him. Sidebars offer instructions for making gingerbread friends to eat and enjoy. The special foldout adds an element of surprise and delight for storytimes or one-on-one sharing.-Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library

    Crashes Every Time :(

    This books looks adorable, but it crashes the Nook Kids app every time I try to open it. Then I have to delete my library and reinstall. The Nook Kids for iPad app needs to be updated.

    Great book

    Wonderful sequel, or book by itself. Illustrations are beautiful. I've read it to my 5 yr old and to K-2 grades at school. They all love it! The side illustrations lead to lots of clues for predicitons, and disscussions.

    Brett's books are always great for children and provide good discussions of morals and values. The illustrations are excellent!

    I have used her books, this new one included, in my teaching of young children and find many values in them. They promote good discussions of behavior, customs, character quality, and life skills.
