Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Kelly
The traditional tale of the mobile cookie who was outwitted by the sly fox gets a clean, crisp treatment here, as part of the "Nursery Classics" series. The series is perhaps misnamed, as the clean lines and large bold type of the book are ideal for early readers. The text of this version follows the traditional story, relying on Messenger's illustrations to add color and embellishment. In most cases, the text and white space together take up most of the room on the pages. This story is more successful than others in this series, perhaps because the short, repetitive nature of the story is well-suited to the chosen format. The overall design of the book is more impressive than the text or illustrations alone, and the inviting nature of the finished product makes it perfect for emergent readers.

    Everyone wants to eat the gingerbread man!

    One of the best memories from childhood is visiting a bakery and buying a gingerbread man. There is still one place I know of that has a bakery dedicated to delicious gingerbread cookies and sometimes we visit Leavenworth, WA just to go to that bakery. If you remember this cute story from your own childhood, pass the gift of story time to your children. They might just want to bake some spicy gingerbread cookies after reading this book. This is a story about a grandmother who decides to make a batch of gingerbread cookies. She makes just one gingerbread man and when she opens the oven door, the gingerbread man jumps out of the oven and says: 'Run, run as fast as you can! You can't catch me - I'm the gingerbread man!' The gingerbread man meets a duck, a cow, a horse and a sly fox. The last page shows the fox licking his chops as he eats the gingerbread man. It then says: 'Like every good cookie that ever comes out of the oven, the gingerbread man was all gone!' Barbara Baumgartner has a talent for telling favorite folktales. Young children love to have wonderful classic stories read to them at bedtime. For more bedtime reading fun, look for more books illustrated by Norman Messenger. They include Jack and the Beanstalk by Rosemary Wells, The Little Red Hen by Alan Garner, and The Three Bears by Robert Southey.
