In the retelling of The Gingerbread Man, a childless woman, and her husband wish nothing more than to have a child. The woman makes a child by shaping a gingerbread man, decorating him, and baking him in the oven. The Gingerbread Man comes to life and outruns all the creatures that try to catch him! But will he be able to avoid the clever fox?
