The Gingerbread Baby is so sad—he has no friends. But when he sets out to find one he finds an adventure like none he has ever taken. All of the others he meets at the cookie and candy shop don’t seem to want to be his friend—they won’t even talk to him. But soon the Gingerbread Baby finds himself in trouble and being chased by all kinds of animals. He races for home where his little boy—Mattie—has a wonderful surprise for him. What surprise does Mattie have waiting for the Gingerbread Baby? Well, to find out you will have to read Jan Brett’s The Gingerbread Baby.
