Description - The Gingerbread Man: A Bloomsbury Young Reader: Turquoise Book Band by Kandace Chimbiri
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 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. They are packed with gorgeous colour illustrations and include inside cover notes with tips for getting the most out of the book, as well as ideas for activities related to the stories.
'Every child needs a Bloomsbury Young Reader. Fun, stretching, just the right length, full of adventurous vocabulary and punctuation.' (Julie-Ann McCulloch, Teacher)
