Tough Cookie: A Christmas Story

(2) K-3 This amusing twist on "The Gingerbread Man" story begins with a fresh-baked cookie chased and caught by a fox, but "BLECH! YOU TASTE AWFUL!" An existential crisis and self-betterment follow until Cookie's brethren--assorted Christmas tree ornaments--find him and clear things up. The funny identity comedy is sprinkled with cookie puns, cinematic compositions, and speech-bubble dialogue. Recipes for "tough cookies" (the edible kind, and nonedible ornaments) are included.
