Remember this guy?!


He’s back! And he’s loose on a fire truck! Guaranteed to be another smile-maker.

From Laura’s website:

This smart cookie is back in a new adventure! On a field trip to the fire station, the Gingerbread Man falls out of a classmate’s backpack and is discovered by a hungry, crumb-snatching Dalmatian. His escape route takes him up the fire pole through the station, and aboard the fire truck. But when the firefighters get a call, can you guess who races to the fire along with them?

Yes, please. You had me at crumb-snatching Dalmation.

Happy birthday, Gingerbread Man!
