Kids will laugh when they hear the Gingerbread Cowboy chant, " ... You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man." They will certainly enjoy the colorful illustrations of the animals depicted against the contrasting, muted background of the Old West desert and mountains.
Hazel Rochman, BOOKLIST reviewer, describes this story best (see Editorial Reviews above): " ... universal trickster tale with a cowboy slant."
SIDENOTE: You may have noticed that Amazon has made some changes to its website. If it looks the same to you right now, look out for a new format that will be rolling out gradually in the weeks to come. If you can see the changes, especially the review format, I'd like to know what you think. Please leave me a comment with your opinion.
"Love the new look" or "Hate the new look" comments are perfectly acceptable.

The Gingerbread Cowboy is beautifully illustrated in warm, earthy colors that add to the atmosphere of the book.
Children will laugh at the gingerbread cowboy's antics and his narrow escapes from almost everyone.
One of the things that I appreciated the most about this book is that it did not stray from the original concept of the story. Sure it takes place in the desert, but the gingerbread man still meets his match in the coyote. I enjoyed the way the author was able to modernize the story without changing the basic plot.
