Galdone delivers his tale with lively nursery-room repetition, as the Gingerbread Boy taunts everyone with the same words and the story builds along with the hungry crowd. While some sensitive children might be disappointed when the Gingerbread Boy finally goes "the way of every single gingerbread boy that ever came out of an oven," once they are over the initial shock they may even envy the fox, who enjoys this delightful confection. If they can get their hands on a gingerbread boy of their own they may be inclined to re-enact the story.
Because Galdone chooses the term "gingerbread boy" instead of "gingerbread man," the runner's taunt doesn't quite rhyme, and for this reason some readers may prefer a story which refers to the cookie as "man." Still, this is a great fit for preschoolers and early elementary listeners, and makes a good read-alone as well.
