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 Sanchez Ayala and an entertaining chase that children will love.
Bloomsbury Young Readers are the perfect way to get children reading, with book-banded stories by brilliant authors like Julia Donaldson. With gorgeous colour illustrations and inside cover notes to help children get the most out of stories, this series is ideal for home and school. Guided reading notes written by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) are available at bloomsburyguidedreading.com.
' Every child needs a Bloomsbury Young Reader.' (Julie-Ann McCulloch, Teacher)
