Book Band: Turquoise (Ideal for ages 6+)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 Sánchez 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. The series is ideal for both home and school, with gorgeous colour illustrations, tips for parents, and fun activity ideas. Online guided reading and teaching notes, written by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), are available at bloomsburyreaders.com.
