gingerbread_baby_(jan_brett).jpg Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett ...
Remember how the Gingerbread Boy is eaten by the fox? Well, not this Gingerbread Baby in a delicious twist to a favorite old tale. It all begins when Matti opens the oven too soon and out jumps a cheeky little Gingerbread Bay. He leads Matti's mother and father, the dog and the cat, and a whole colorful cast of characters on a rollicking chase through the village and into the forest, staying just out of reach, daring them to catch him along the way. But Matti's not with them. He's at home in the borders of the book, making what turns out to be a gingerbread house into which the Gingerbread Baby runs. Only Matti knows he is safely inside. And readers will, too, when they look under the lift-the-flap gingerbread house at the end of the story, and there he is!

gingerbread_boy_(egielski).jpg... by Richard Egielski ...
In this contemporary retelling of a nursery classic, Caldecott-winning illustrator Richard Egielski adds an urban twist to a well-loved tale. This time, the gingerbread boy is on the loose in New York City, and he taunts everyone from construction workers to subway musicians, until his fateful chase through Central Park!
The chase is on! When the gingerbread boy rises from butter and molasses, everyone wants him for a snack. But the gingerbread boy has other ideas. He hops out the window, slides down the fire escape, and runs through the streets of New York City, while the bakers, construction workers, musicians, a policeman, and even a city rat drop everything they're doing in hot pursuit. The oh-so-proud gingerbread boy thinks he can out run them all, until he meets a wily fox who doesn't chase the gingerbread boy at all.

gingerbread_man_loose_in_the_school.jpg ...by Laura Murray
When a class leaves for recess, their just-baked Gingerbread Man is left behind. But he's a smart cookie and heads out to find them. He'll run, slide, skip, and (after a mishap with a soccer ball) limp as fast as he can because: "I can catch them! I'm their Gingerbread Man!"
With help from the gym teacher, the nurse, the art teacher and even the principal, a deliciously sweet ending is served up for both the Gingerbread Man and the children who made him.

runaway_rice_cake.png ... by Ying Chang Compestine
It's the Chinese New Year, and the Chang Family has only enough rice flour to make one nián-gão, a special New Year's rice cake, for the entire family to eat. But this delicious little nián-gão has other ideas. "Ai yo! I don't think so!" it cries, coming to life and escaping.
Ming, Cong, little Da and their parents chase the nián-gão all over the village until it runs into a hungry, old woman and sends her tumbling to the ground. Though Da is a small boy, his heart is big enough to share the treat with her, even though that leaves Da's family with nothing to eat for their own celebration. But the Changs' generosity doesn't go unnoticed. When they return home, they find the Kitchen God has left a wonderful surprise for them.
Ying Chang Compestine's heartwarming story conveys an important and poignant message about sharing and compassion. (Amazon book review)

In this frosty spoof of the tale of the gingerbread boy, a mother makes her thirsty boy an ice cube for his lemonade. The ice cube escapes from the freezer and runs out the kitchen door. He has big plans—he wants to grow as big as an iceberg so he can bump into boats. “Can’t catch me—I’m off to the sea,” the ice cube says to the boy, an ant, a mouse, a cat, a goose, a man, and a dog as he leads his pursuers on a merry chase to the sea. In the end, the ice cube finds that just desserts are not always sweet. And a thirsty boy discovers that mothers really do know best.
