Run run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me…. or can you? Every Christmas season, gingerbread men come alive. The only way to keep them around until Christmas, is a treasured, tasty secret. And if it’s done right, something special is left behind.

Review 2020 red

In 1875 The Gingerbread Man folk tale was first told, since then the story has been passed down from generation to generation. The Gingerbread House is like an up-to-date sequel to that tale, perfect for children today.

So how do you catch the Gingerbread Man? With a Gingerbread House, maybe!

In this rhyming and beautifully illustrated young children’s picture book, we follow the Gingerbread Man as he lets us know what will keep him from running away. He wants a house to live in but it must have sweets, oh and maybe a car too.

The plot is a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it, I’m confident little children will love it too. It certainly brought the Gingerbread Man into the twenty-first century with his moonwalking and hop-hop dancing.

I can see this being a book wanted over and over again at bedtime. Ms. West has done a fabulous job carrying on the years-old tale and if you love the original I suggest you give this one a read too.
