"The Marshmallow Man" is an entertaining story that will have children flipping the pages to find out what happens next. An old lady who is lonely creates a marshmallow man to help keep her company. The marshmallow man however, is an adventurous soul and sets out with the refrain, "You can't catch me, I'm the Marshmallow Man." The story will appeal to preschoolers' and young elementary students' sense of adventure. The Marshmallow Man stimulates a child's imagination. Macquignon's illustrations are sharp, bringing the story's creativity to life. "The Marshmallow Man" is a fine book for any 3-7 year-old's library.Was this review helpful?

Like any storybook character made from food, the marshmallow man is a sweet guy, but is popular for the wrong reasons. Gulp! Children will love the familiar, repetitive rhyme used by the marshmallow man as he tries to escape from hungry forest friends. Will he ever reach safety?
This book gives a creative twist to the gingerbread man story. I laughed out loud at the clever ending. Beautifully colored, playful illustrations of woodland animals are the icing on the cake.
Anyone who has roasted marshmallows around a campfire will warm up to this story. In fact, reading the book around a campfire would be fun! I highly recommend the book to preschool teachers as a story children would enjoy acting out.
