This book is magnificently illustrated and the font is the perfect size and style. The story line is great for 2 - 6 year olds and maybe 7 year olds. It is adventurous, funny, touching and overall mega brilliant! My favourite part of the book is what the little biscuit person says ("Run! Run! As fast as you can, you can't catch me - I'm the Gingerbread Man!") through out the whole book."The Gingerbread Man" is a wonderfully enjoyable famous classic story to read over and over and over again with little ones. This is a Read It Yourself Level Two title for beginner readers who can read short simple sentences with a little bit of help. I really like the pictures in the book which add humour and pleasure into reading the story.
This book doesn't have the refrain "Run, Run as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man". So I have to add it in when I read it to my kids, which I found quite annoying. Otherwise its ok.
