9780399257797: The Gingerbread Man Loose on the Fire Truck

Guess who gets to go along on a field trip to the firehouse? The Gingerbread Man! But when he falls out of his classmate's pocket, Spot the Dalmatian comes sniffing around. Luckily, this Gingerbread Man is one smart cookie, and he races into the fire truck, up the pole, and all through the station, staying one step ahead of the hungry dog the whole time.

Then an emergency call comes in and the Gingerbread Man knows just what to do:


“I’ll ride to the rescue, as fast as I can.

I want to help, too! I’m the Gingerbread Man!”

With snappy rhymes and fresh illustrations, the Gingerbread Man makes a sweet return in his second school adventure. Includes a poster with fire safety tips and activities.

About the Author:

Laura Murray was a teacher before becoming an author, and had to deal with many an escaped Gingerbread Man in her time.  Her first book, The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School was chosen as a Junior Library Guild Selection; is a 2013-2014 Virginia, Illinois, and Nevada  Reader's Choice Award Nominee;  a Florida Children's Choice Award Honor book, and received glowing reviews from Kirkus, Publisher's Weekly, Horn Book, SLJ, along with a starred Booklist review.
 
Her new book - a fired-up, follow-up entitled The Gingerbread Man Loose on the Fire Truck was inspired by the hard-working and enthusiastic fire fighters who used to visit her students during October  Fire Safety week.  And as the Kirkus review says, "This rapid-fire reboot of a traditional favorite will be a requested read-aloud for high-energy listeners...this sequel doesn't disappoint..."
 
Laura lives with her family in northern Virginia.  Visit her online for fun Gingerbread Man and fire safety activities, as well as information on school author presentations, at LauraMurrayBooks.com.

Review:

"This rapid-fire reboot of a traditional favorite will be  a requested read-aloud for high-energy listeners...this sequel doesn't disappoint..." - Kirkus

"The indefatigable star of The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School (rev. 9/11) here joins his class on a field trip to the fire station. While the kids are meeting the firefighters and testing out their gear, the Gingerbread Man is busy evading Spot the Dalmatian. After a chase through the station, the ambulatory cookie leaps onto a departing fire truck, off to battle a blaze: 'I'll ride to the rescue, as fast as I can. / I want to help, too! I'm the Gingerbread Man!' And help he does..." - The Horn Book

"...The cookie's self-guided tour allows readers to see the ins and outs of a fire station, including the firefighters' bunks, their shiny sliding pole, and their kitchen, with "five-alarm chili" bubbling away on the stove. One useful page shows a firefighter in uniform with all the gear labeled--boots, gloves, goggles, oxygen tank, etc. Lowery's cartoony illustrations... help set the story's pace and establish a not-scary tone: it's clear that no cookies were burnt in the making of this book."   - The Horn Book

"In this follow-up to The Gingerbread Man Loose in School (Putnam, 2011), the same cute cookie, now a classroom staple, is sneaked into a backpack so that he can go on the class field trip to the fire station. Stylistically reminiscent of Mo Willems's work, Lowery's images vary between panels and full-page art... written in rhyming couplets, will make a fantastic read-aloud." - School Library Journal
