When this gingerbread man was baked, someone forgot to put in the ginger. He's made of eggs and cinnamon and flour and butter and sugar, but he's missing a key ingredient! Without ginger, the gingerbread man feels like he's not really a gingerbread man at all! He can't be sold in the bakery, so he lives at the back of the store. And there he causes all kinds of trouble. This gingerbread man eats the baker's decorating candy. He throws sprinkles across the counter and squirts frosting on the walls. It's not long before the baker has had enough of the gingerbread man's mischief and orders him to leave. The gingerbread man realizes he'll have to change his ways, and the baker decides to help. He teaches the gingerbread man that his ingredients don't make him who he is--it's his character that defines him. So the gingerbread man begins to help the baker decorate the other gingerbread men and women. He helps prepare them and makes sure they find their way on their journey from the oven to the bakery shelf. And he always makes sure to add the ginger. This is a story about being kind and finding happiness through helping others. Sandford's cute illustrations accompany Louise's sweet story, and children won't be able to resist its delightful charm. Sky Pony Press, with our Good Books, Racehorse and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers--picture books for small children, chapter books, books for middle grade readers, and novels for young adults. Our list includes bestsellers for children who love to play Minecraft; stories told with LEGO bricks; books that teach lessons about tolerance, patience, and the environment, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
