With warmth and humor, the beloved author and Caldecott Honor illustrator Paul Galdone masterfully retells the generations-old fairy tale of the Gingerbread Boy who escapes one mouth only to find himself in another. After the cookie boy's dramatic escape from the little old woman's oven, he runs and runs, shouting "Catch me if you can!" to his various hungry pursuers, the last of whom is a smarty-pants fox who eats him--gulp! Action-packed storytelling and plenty of repetition--along with Galdone's comical ink-and-wash illustrations--are the perfect recipe for a perennial story-hour favorite.
