The Gingerbread Man

gingerWould you ever bake a real living Ginger Bread Man? If you would, then you should read The Ginger Bread Man by Karen Schmidt. I think the Ginger Bread Man is fast, mean, playful, and sneaky because he just brags to all of the animals of how fast he is.
The book is about a grandma and a grandpa that baked a Ginger Bread Man. Then when the Ginger Bread Man was ready… He POPPED out of the oven, out the door, and ran away. The grandma and the grandpa chased him. The grandpa and grandpa ran fast but the Ginger Bread Man ran faster and said “You can’t catch me I’m the Ginger Bread Man”. Then the grandparents had to rest. Later he met other animals and all he said was “You can’t catch me I’m the Ginger Bread Man”. The last thing he saw was a fox. What will the fox do to him? Is it something bad and sad? Or is it something happy?
My opinion about the Ginger Bread Man is that he is very sneaky, mean, and playful. I think he is sneaky because he jumped out of the oven with no one knowing. He is mean because he brags to all of the animals of how fast he is. And he is playful as a kid because he always plays around and jokes. The moral is to not be mean to someone or they will be mean back to you. The illustrations are crazy funny because it looks so weird how everyone is chasing the Ginger Bread Man. I recommend this book to an old person that has a pet that drives them crazy. I would rate this book and give it 5 stars and a big thumb up because the book is amazing. One reason the book is amazing is because it has hilarious illustrations. For example, when it showed how the Ginger Bread Man popped out of the oven in the beginning. Enjoy reading The Ginger Bread Man!
