This is one of a series of 'First Favourite Tales' that are perfect for little ones just flexing their new reading skills. My four year old nephew adores this book, especially the sly fox who leads the gingerbread man to a sticky end! Great fun for all ages.

My daughter loves the story, the rhyme, and the main character - the Gingerbread Man. I love Ladybird books because the illustrations are so realistic and vivid, but in this case, its a drawback because the ending features an illustration of the sly fox opening up its mouth wide, revealing lots of sharp, ghastly teeth and very vivid details of the spots on its tongue, the ridges in its mouth cavity, etc. To put it simply, my daughter was actually a bit scared of seeing that picture and really isn't very fond of the book as a result. She never really wants to see the ending, and I've never found her browsing the book by herself out of her own accord, whereas she'd browse other books on her own. Prior to buying this, I'd never have guessed that she'd have such a reaction to a picture in the book. Perhaps I should have bought the Ladybird First Tales version. That series has tamer illustrations...

my 2 yr old loves the story, the repetition of the 'run run as fast as you can...' is fun for little children. highly reccommended

I ordered 4 different books from this series and am pleased with them all. I read reviews on this site before I ordered them and would agree with the main themes from these. The illustrations are great. The text is rhyming - the degree to which varies with each book - but in all cases makes it fun when reading to your child. You can do great voices to go along with the books (particularly in 3 Billy Goats Gruff!). Overall I would recommend.

Nice bright artwork, easy to follow and interpret pictures, large text too. This book is a classic and i love reading it to my daughter as much as she loves hearing it. What would have been great (but none of the books do this so its not a dig (put-down) is a push and pull tab for the gingerbread man running, being chased etc. would just make for more interaction.

My little boy was asking for the gingerbread man book so he was really pleased when this arrived the only thing I was disappointed with was the quality it was stated to be in very good condition but I would have said more fair condition as there was crayon scribbled through the book
