Synopsis

Run, run as fast as you can, You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man.

The Gingerbread Man is chased all the way to the river by the Little Old Woman, the Little Old Man, Humpty Dumpty, the Grand Old Duke of York, Little Miss Muffet, and many other familiar characters. And indeed, none can catch him. But the Gingerbread Man cannot swim . . . . Can he run away from the wily old fox who offers to help him across the river?
This is a delightful retelling of a beloved children’s classic fable. Carol Jones’ illustrations are beautifully detailed and will give hours of pleasure to children and adults.
