This story is about the little Gingerbread Man. A lady was baking him and the little Gingerbread Man ran out in the grass. The little Gingerbread man ran and a lot of animals where chasing him. Also, the lady that was baking him was chasing him. Then he got on a fox by the river. The fox tricked the Gingerbread Man and he ate the Gingerbread Man. Then the fox was happy.

My favorite part is when the animals were chasing the Gingerbread Man because the Gingerbread Man was running fast. He kept saying, "Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man."

The pictures where pretty because they had nice mountains. The pictures were also very colorful.

I was sad because the Gingerbread Man got eaten. The fox should not have been so sneaky.

I recommend this book because it is pretty with nice words. I recommend this book to babies because their parents will read it to them. Also, the story was interesting because everyone was chasing the Gingerbread man
