Publisher's Description

With warmth and humor, the beloved author and Caldecott Honor illustrator Paul Galdone masterfully retells the generations-old fairy tale of the Gingerbread Boy who escapes one mouth only to find himself in another. After the cookie boy’s dramatic escape from the little old woman’s oven, he runs and runs, shouting “Catch me if you can!” to his various hungry pursuers, the last of whom is a smarty-pants fox who eats him—gulp! Action-packed storytelling and plenty of repetition—along with Galdone’s comical ink-and-wash illustrations—are the perfect recipe for a perennial story-hour favorite.

Author Bio

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.

Editorial Reviews

"A wonderfully frenetic cross-country chase is depicted in Galdone's broadly humorous color wash drawings." School Library Journal, Starred
