Gingerbread Baby: 04/25/07

Gingerbread Baby

At the April BookCrossing meeting Sean and I were given a stack of children's books. Gingerbread Baby is one of those books.

Gingerbread Baby starts with the story of the gingerbread boy and is given the Jan Brett treatment.

The book follows the gingerbread baby as he runs amok through the village to escape the hungry mobs of people who all want to eat him. Pay attention to the illustrations at the edge of each page to see just how he will ultimately be caught.

While the illustrations are as delightful as in The Hat, I didn't enjoy the story as much. The Gingerbread Boy isn't one of my favorite fairy tales to begin with so it would have taken a lot to capture my attention.
