Christmas Book Review Day 3: The Gingerbread Man

Author: Karen Schmidt

Illustrator: Karen Schmidt

Summary: Everyone’s heard the saying “you can’t catch me, I’m the gingerbread man!” What would happen though if someone did catch the delicious cookie? Who could? Who would? This version of the gingerbread man

If you’re a fan of the morbid fairytales then this is the one for you. I love gingerbread men, they’re so cute and sassy looking, and they taste delicious. This story though is not one I would read to kids to encourage a love of gingerbread men, unless they are older and can appreciate that the old fairy tales did not have “happily-ever-afters”.

Quality: The illustrations are good, and the story not new but it does lend a surprise at the end. Overall, there are other gingerbread books I’d recommend before this one.

Rating: 2 out of 5 Christmas tree rating.
