The Gingerbread Man

(4) K-3 My First Fairy Tales series. Illustrated by Miriam Latimer. In these tame, mostly straightforward, and slightly simplified retellings of well-known traditional tales, Foxy Loxy, the Gingerbread Man, Rumpelstiltskin, and the wolf are all vanquished but not violently. The illustrations (each by a different artist) are bright and sunny with expressive cartoon characters. Printed on shiny, heavy-duty stock, the books will stand up to repeated readings. No sources or back matter are provided. Review covers the following My First Fairy Tales titles: Chicken Little, The Gingerbread Man, Rumpelstiltskin, and The Three Little Pigs.
