Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This Gingerbread Man was loose in the school and on the fire truck, and now he's loose at holiday time! <br> <br> Everyone in class is busy practicing songs and making goodies for their trip to town to thank community helpers, and the Gingerbread Man has made a card for someone extra sweet. But before he can deliver his gift, whipping wind and swirling snow come to town, too. Slushy sidewalks are no place for a cookie, but this Gingerbread Man won't let a little bad weather stop him!<br> <br> "I'll search on my own, as fast as I can!<br> I'll dash through this snow. I'm the Gingerbread Man!" <br> <br> With all the flavors of the season and generous dashes of kindness and gratitude, the Gingerbread Man's newest adventure makes for a perfect read-aloud throughout the holidays.

Horn Book Review

This jolly book, in addition to bringing us another entertaining Gingerbread Man escapade (The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School, rev. 9/11; The Gingerbread Man Loose on the Fire Truck, rev. 7/13), serves as a sort of pre-origin story for our hero. He may have been baked in the oven by schoolchildren, but whered they get the recipe? Over the course of this book the students dash around town spreading cheer to community helpers. At the storys climax, the Gingerbread Man meets his maker (dont worry, its just in the literal sense; though there is some actual cookie-peril along the way). Lowerys festive illustrations of cookie and co., done in pencil, traditional screen printing, and digital color, are a treat, while Murrays rhymes are continually surprising and satisfying. She can make you work, but the payoff is there: Next came a garbage man picking up trash, / so we dropped off some goodies to stash on his dash. elissa gershowitz (c) Copyright 2015.
