"Run run run as fast as you can. You can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gingerbread Boy?

Gingerbread Boy  Jan 11, 2007
The book was in excellent condition and received quickly in the mail. I was very pleased!
The urban Gingerbread Boy story  Sep 2, 2000
Set in New York City, Richard Egielski's version of The Gingerbread Boy is a treat for the eyes. The illustrations are richly detailed and colorful, and my 3 year old son loves this modern version. He and I talk about the characters and details, telling stories within the story. Our favorite illustration shows of a group of construction workers who pause in their work to chase that irresistible gingerbread boy. My son really loves the chase scenes, but the picture of the fox eating the gingerbread boy is a little scary. We highly recommend this version to readers 3 and up.
