With warmth and humor, the beloved author and Caldecott Honor illustrator Paul Galdone masterfully retells the generations-old fairy tale of the Gingerbread Boy who escapes one mouth only to find himself in another. After the cookie boy s dramatic escape from the little old woman s oven, he runs and runs, shouting Catch me if you can to his various hungry pursuers, the last of whom is a smarty-pants fox who eats him gulp Action-packed storytelling and plenty of repetition along with Galdone s comical ink-and-wash illustrations are the perfect recipe for a perennial story-hour favorite.
