Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Is there anything more fun than a class trip to the zoo? The Gingerbread Man and his classmates don't think so, and they get to solve riddles on a WILD scavenger hunt. They meet giraffes, monkeys, and even a fox (especially scary for a Gingerbread Man!).<br> <br> But a zoo full of critters is a tricky place for a tasty cookie-even a very fast one-and the Gingerbread Man ends up separated from his friends. He needs to solve all of the riddles to catch up with his class and help someone else who is lost.<br> <br> I'll be a detective. I know that I can!<br> I'll solve all these clues. I'm the Gingerbread Man!<br> <br> Animals galore and a trail of clues make the Gingerbread Man's latest adventure his wildest one yet.

When the gingerbread man gets separated from his class during a field trip to the zoo, he uses his teacher's animal scavenger hunt clues to find his way back to them.

Horn Book Review

Hes already taken a field trip to the fire station (The Gingerbread Man Loose on the Fire Truck, rev. 7/13). Now, in the fourth Gingerbread Man book, its time to visit the zoo. Its zippity zoo day! / Get ready to go. / Lets load up the bus / And find out / What you know, says the teacher handing out clues to a zoo-animal scavenger hunt. The gingerbread man rises to the challenge: Ill be a detective. / I know that I can! / Ill solve all these clues. Im the / Gingerbread Man! Things go awry when a giraffe mistakes him for food (in the giraffes defense, he is food). By the time our hero has escaped, the class has moved on. Undaunted, the gingerbread man follows the scavenger hunt clues around the zoo and, with the help of a lost joey, finally finds his classmates. Murray and Lowerys consistently winning recipe includes bouncy, ear-pleasing rhymes and spry, varied illustrations. With school back in session, where will this sweet group of students -- and their loyal cookie pal -- go next? elissa gershowitz (c) Copyright 2016.
