Brett takes the simple refrain of the uncatchable gingerbread man and expands it into a wonderful story that utilizes her tried and true format of story expansion through slowly adding characters which wraps up with a clever twist at the finale. In this case, she has an increasing number of family members, animals, and villagers begin to chase the wily gingerbread baby as he runs away from his baker, Matti. Matti may have disobeyed the recipe and peeked at the gingerbread man before he was done baking (therefore resulting in the magical gingerbread baby), but he returns to the recipe book to learn the secret of how to catch the gingerbread baby. I won’t reveal the secret, but it’s definitely worth the wait to read the final pages! ( )

Gingerbread Baby Remember how the Gingerbread Boy is eaten by the fox? Well, not this Gingerbread Baby in a delicious twist to a favorite old tale. It all begins when Matti opens the oven too soon and out jumps a cheeky little Gingerbread Bay. He leads Matti's mother and father, the dog and the cat. And a whole colorful cast of characters on a rollicking chase through the village and into the forest, staying just out of reach, daring them to catch him along the way. But Matti's not with them.

Matti opens the over to find the Gingerbread baby jump out and run out the door. The Gingerbread baby runs and runs to get away from the animals and Matti’s mother and father, and takes them on a chase through the village and into the forest. Matti stays at home with illustrations in the borders making a gingerbread house for the Gingerbread baby to run into after the chase. Jan Brett's illustrations are magical, and this is a fun book to read around Christmastime.

Inspired by the classic Euro-American folktale about the Gingerbread Man, prolific picture-book author/artist Jan Brett spins an engaging fantasy about a Gingerbread Baby who, let out of the oven early by his young creator, takes off on a wild escapade. As almost all the farm residents, and then the villagers give chase, Matti, the young boy who baked the runaway cookie in the first place, sets out to create a Gingerbread house for his independent creation...

Similar in many respects to a number of European folktales about runaway delectables - the Russian Kolobok, the Norwegian tale of the runaway pancake - the American story of The Gingerbread Man first saw print in 1875, in children's periodical St. Nicholas Magazine. Apparently it was told to the author's children by a storyteller from Maine. Whatever its origins, this story has been given an entertaining twist by Brett, who saves her runaway baby from the usual fate (being eaten by the cunning fox), and gives young readers a happier ending. As always with this artist, the illustrations are gorgeous, with a rich, full color palette, lots of details in the decorative borders and side-panels, and a fun flap to be lifted on the final two-page spread, revealing the Gingerbread Baby in his new home. Recommended to Jan Brett fans, and to anyone looking for entertaining retellings of this classic tale. ( )

I'm the little Gingerbread Baby,
Lucky as can be,
To be living in the house,
That Matti made for me!
"Hello, Matti," his father said when they got home. "We never did catch that Gingerbread Baby. All we found were some crumbs in the snow."
There in the middle of a clearing was a gingerbread house, frosted with sugar, covered with candy, and doors with peppermint handles wide open.
