The classic tale of the old couple, with no children of their own, who bake a gingerbread boy to keep them company. Just as the little old woman is about to take him from the oven, he slips away and runs out the door past a cow, a horse, a group of threshers, mowers, etc. All follow in hot pursuit until the gingerbread boy meets up with a wily fox, and at last and at last he went the way of every single gingerbread boy that ever came out of an oven . . . He was all gone! A wonderfully frenetic cross-country chase is depicted in Galdones broadly humorous color wash drawings. Of the eight editions of this well-known story now in print, this hilarious version is the most delectable. School Library Journal, starred

Galdone has already proven many times over that he is perfectly at home with those traditional nursery tales that are still preschoolers favorites, and his expressive, unassuming style just right for their very young audience. . . . Children will follow along breathlessly . . . right up to that last snip snap snip when the Gingerbread Boy goes the way of every single gingerbread boy that ever came out of an oven.Kirkus Reviews
