Overview

The Gingerbread Girl by Lisa Campbell Ernst

The lonely old woman and the lonely old man decide to bake a girl this time, but when they open the oven, she runs off like her brother did. Never fear, this smart cookie has a plan to outfox the fox. Will it work? Let's just say that the ending is sweet for everyone.

'Ernst's familiar art, here placed against gingham-check backgrounds, utilizes the oversize format to best advantage, with large characters leaping out of their frames. On the cover, the candy-studded Gingerbread Girl with licorice-whip hair stares boldly out at readers. Kids won't be able to resist following her inside.'-Booklist

My 4K class loved this book! They enjoyed reading it over and over...they also enjoyed the sequel "The Gingerbread Girl Animal Crackers" by the same author. My class thought it was super funny that the girl didnt get eaten by the fox like her brother.
