The Gingerbread Man

by Karen Lee Schmidt Illustrated by Karen Lee Schmidt
The Gingerbread Man runs as fast as he can in this fast-paced classic about a very determined little cookie! A perfect gift for any little one starting his or her collection of children's stories.  A gingerbread man escapes from the oven and runs through the countryside pursued by an old man, an old woman, a little boy, three farmers, a bear, and a wolf.
