The Gingerbread Girl Goes Animal Crackers by Lisa Campbell Ernst
Birthday time!! Gingerbread Girl is celebrating her birthday and the old man and woman have a gift for her. She can hear the grunts and growls from the package tied with a licorice-whip ribbon. The Gingerbread GIrl carefully begins to lift the top and, as expected, out comes the rush of animal crackers and off they go. Very much like the chase involving the famous Gingerbread Boy and Gingerbread Girl, the animal crackers take off on a race with the Gingerbread Girl following behind, trying to warn the crackers about the danger in their future. Adorable follow up to the Gingerbread Girl story with a cute twist at the end. Clever, fun rhymes throughout.
