From the Back Cover:

"Run run run as fast as you can. You can't catch me! I'm the gingerbread man."

In this modern 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.

In this exhilarating retelling, Caldecott Medal winner Richard Egielski modernizes and urbanizes the nursery classic, bringing the gingerbread boy in from the fields to the hubbub of the city, playing up the fun of a bunch of grownups leaving work in the middle of the day to chase a cookie.
