" Matti makes a ginger bread house to try and catch a rogue ginger bread cookie. A very beautifully illustrated book by Jan Brett. A story of an escaped cookie. " said.

" Great Read Aloud. Love the story but kindle on iPad makes it hard to read the words and see the pictures too. A fix is required. " said.

" Really like this twist on a classic story! " said.

" Story: 5 starsIllustrations: 5 starsRe-telling of the classic Gingerbread Man tale, with a Scandinavian setting and a twist ending. Lovely illustrations with intricate details and plenty of Nordic flair. Surprise ending comes with a hidden flap page. " said.

" This was a cute story that plays off of the Gingerbread Man. I think that the illustrations are great and they gave clues and hints of what is coming next on the edges of the pages. The ending of the book is unexpected and I think that children will really love this version of the story. " said.

"Brett takes the simple refrain of the uncatchable gingerbread man and expands it into a wonderful story that utilizes her tried and true format of story expansion through slowly adding characters which wraps up with a clever twist at the finale. In this case, she has an increasing number of family members, animals, and villagers begin to chase the wily gingerbread baby as he runs away from his baker, Matti. Matti may have disobeyed the recipe and peeked at the gingerbread man before he was done baking (therefore resulting in the magical gingerbread baby), but he returns to the recipe book to learn the secret of how to catch the gingerbread baby. I won’t reveal the secret, but it’s definitely worth the wait to read the final pages!" said.

" Read at Storytime, December 6, 2017Theme: Jan Brett stories " said.

" This is such a wonderful story, I like how it closly relates to the original story. My son loved all the pictures, which were simply amazing. He was picking out different animals, shapes, and items, while I was reading to him. He now says "Gingerbread Baby run!" This will now be a favorite to read durning Christmas time in my house. " said.
