In the Gingerbread Mans third picture book, he and his human classmates are busy delivering gifts around town, from homemade cards and treats to songs with jingle-bell beats. The Gingerbread Man is eager to participate, but not unlike Frosty the Snowmans touchy relationship with the weather, slushy streets and legs made of dough are a less-than-ideal combination (Ill hobble right over, as fast as I can./ Ill give my gift, too, Im the Gingerbread Man!). Lowerys use of comics-style panels and the nursery rhyme rhythms of Murrays verse keep the story moving as quickly as its confectionary hero. The emphasis on generosity and humble, heartfelt gifts makes for sweet holiday reading, and a visit to the bakery ensures that the Gingerbread Man gets to deliver his gift and gains some new all-weather gear. Ages 58. Authors agent: Marietta Zacker, Nancy Gallt Literary Agency. Illustrators agency: Lilla Rogers Studio. (Oct.)
