A leprechaun is causing all kinds of trouble on St. Patrick's Day--but our popular Gingerbread Man is back to save the day!

After a mischievous leprechaun makes a mess of the band room, the Gingerbread Man vows to catch him. He follows the leprechaun's clues all around the building finding chaos everywhere--even in the library! But then he finds the worst clue of all. It says the leprechaun's next target might be a house made of gingerbread!

Luckily, the Gingerbread Man makes it to his classroom in time to set a trap for the leprechaun. He'll show that mischief maker that he messed with the wrong cookie this time.

"I'm on a mission! I've got a good plan.
I can catch him! I'm the Gingerbread Man!"

Laura Murray's books are beyond engaging to our young readers. They love to read about their beloved Gingerbread Man and how he solves problems. It's always great to revive characters at later parts of the year and teach children how to look for illustrator traits. This book would make a great addition to our classroom!

I have a class of 20 four year olds from diverse backgrounds. As a school, we are 100% free and reduced lunch. Many of the children do not have books in their homes and therefore their only exposure to literature is what I make available in the classroom.
