In this version of the classic Gingerbread Man story, the Gingerbread Baby escapes from the oven and by the end of the book it seems as if the whole town is chasing him. What readers get to see with Jan Brett’s extra illustrations on the side is that Matti (the boy who made the Gingerbread Baby) is devising a plan to catch him. By the end of the story the Gingerbread Baby has been caught, but only Matti knows where he is…safe inside the gingerbread house Matti was making while everyone else was chasing him.
