The Gingerbread Girl

Front Cover
Dutton Children's Books, 2006 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
51 Reviews
The lonely old woman and the lonely old man decide to bake a girl this time, but when they open the oven, she runs off like her brother did. Never fear, this smart cookie has a plan to outfox the fox. Will it work? Let?s just say that the ending is sweet for everyone.

?Ernst?s familiar art, here placed against gingham-check backgrounds, utilizes the oversize format to best advantage, with large characters leaping out of their frames. On the cover, the candy-studded Gingerbread Girl with licorice-whip hair stares boldly out at readers. Kids won?t be able to resist following her inside.??Booklist

I loved the story. The ending is sweet and it is not like expected. The rhyme for the gingerbread girl is cute and catchy. There is no one quite like the gingerbread girl. Read full review
