I can’t say enough about how much I love this book! The story is perfection itself; I laughed and actually cried a tiny bit and I really cared about those cute little ginger guys. This book puts me in a Christmas mood! Those little gingerbread men are so full of courage and resourcefulness and spunk. I just loved seeing them run for their lives and outwit the hungry people trying to eat them.
The ending was absolutely beautiful! It is rare that I see so delightful and meaningful an ending in a simple children’s book. And all in rhyme too! The rhyme is exactly right, telling the story in a fun and lyric way. (And I’m picky about poetry and rhyme.)
I cannot get over how bright and gorgeous the illustrations are! It really draws you into the story, and makes you love the characters. Each little guy in the gingerbrood has their own personality, their own little voice. They are so adorable!
I can’t wait to read this book out loud to some little kids!
