    Did I get this because my nephew still obsesses over Gingerbread Men or did I get this because I am obsessed with Jan Brett? Some of bothThis is a continuation of Gingerbread Baby The baby has everything he wants and is happy as long as Matti is around So when he goes off to school the baby goes looking for friends I love the sleigh he makes of a rocking chair and the rooster that pulls it with it poofy white mop top Her visuals are so sweet Baby has an adventure and comes home to find a surprise from MattiThere is an amazing pullout at the end that doubles the size of the book It's amazing It's also difficult to fold back up at least in a library copy Everything about this book my nephew simply loves I think this one is simple than the other stories and it still does it's job I have been entertained

    This was sort of the seuel to Gingerbread Baby I read it today just for funIn the book our buddy Gingerbread Baby has no friends and tries to find some He has a difficult time until his bff Mattie comes to the rescue and bakes him some buddies That part was featured on a huge pop up page that the kids LOVEDOne thing that annoyed me about this book was that in Gingerbread Baby the boy's name was spelled Matti In this one it was Mattie with an E Hello editor?

    That mischievous cookie Gingerbread Baby whose adventures began in the eponymous picture book Gingerbread Baby returns in this second story devoted to his adventures Although happy to live in the gingerbread house his creator Matti had made for him in the previous book our hero finds himself lonely from time to time and sets out to find others like him His uest leads him nowhere and he returns home dispirited only to find that in his absence Matti has provided him with just what he needsA sweet seuel to Gingerbread Baby's earlier adventure Gingerbread Friends features a rhyming refrain in which our cookie hero continually asks the inanimate delectables he meets if they will be his friend that put me in mind of the text of the traditional tale The Gingerbread Man upon which these books are based The artwork as is always the case with Brett is colorful and ornate with beautiful details throughout I appreciated the parallel narrative involving Matti and his baking that is depicted solely in the side panels of the illustrations I also enjoyed the huge fold out page at the end in which Gingerbread Baby discovers what Matti has made for him Recommended to all Jan Brett fans and to anyone who has read and enjoyed Gingerbread Baby's first book
