The Gingerbread Man: A Bloomsbury Young Reader written by Kandace Chimbiri, illustrated by Richy Sanchez Ayala, narrated by Leo Wringer, published by Bloomsbury Publishing.

A new Caribbean take on a traditional story, ideal for children practising their reading at home or in school.

An old woman dreams that a gingerbread man will make her happy so she bakes a beautiful one. But as soon as he’s out of the oven, he has other ideas! He’s fast enough to outrun the old woman and her husband but half the village wants to eat him. How can this possibly make the old woman happy? Kandace Chimbiri’s retelling of The Gingerbread Man has a Caribbean twist and is perfect for Key Stage 1 (KS1) children who are learning to read by themselves. It features illustrations from Richy Sánchez Ayala and an entertaining chase that children will love.
