You have heard the story about the Gingerbread Boy, haven’t you? How he jumped off of the tray in the oven and went running out the door, leading everyone on a merry chase. Gullible as he was, he believed he would be safe on top of the fox’s head, according to one version.
Jan Brett gives this story a different twist. In Gingerbread Baby, Matti and his mother worked together in the warm kitchen on a cold day, with the goal of baking a gingerbread boy.
