The Gingerbread Boy - Memoria Press

$8.99

In The Gingerbread Boy, author and Caldecott Honor illustrator Paul Galdone retells the classic fairy tale of the runaway boy made of gingerbread. One day, an old woman bakes a gingerbread boy, but he escapes from her oven and runs down the lane shouting “Catch me if you can!” He is chased by a cow, a horse, a barn full of threshers, and a field full of mowers, but the little gingerbread boy runs faster than them all. But at last, the gingerbread boy gets caught and outsmarted by a tricky fox who gobbles him up! Galdone’s humorous ink-and-wash illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to this rollicking, rhythmic, repetitive tale.
