Description

Solve the riddles to find the runaway gingerbread men in this funny and magical cookie hunt! Marshall knows one thing for sure, despite what all the stories say: Gingerbread men cannot run. Cookies are for eating, and he can't wait to eat his after spending all morning baking them with his class. But when it's time to take the gingerbread men out of the oven . . . they're gone! Now, to find those rogue cookies, Marshall and his class have to solve a series of rhyming clues. And Marshall just might have to rethink his stance on magic. Catch That Cookie! is an imaginative mystery, deliciously illustrated by Caldecott Medal winner David Small. It's sure to inspire a new classroom tradition . . . and maybe even a few new believers!show more

Review quote

Praise for Catch That Cookie: * -Durand has written a delightfully ingenious story with an altogether appealing protagonist in Marshall. The icing on the cake--er, gingerbread--is Small's wonderful pictures, created in pen-and-ink and watercolor, fill single- and double-page spreads. A wonderful draughtsman, Small uses a fluid line that adds energy to an already lively story and further invests it with wit and whimsy. All of these ingredients combine to make a truly tasty tale.- --Booklist, starred review -Add this to your small shelf of truly special seasonal explorations of belief, but don't wait for a holiday to share it!- --School Library Journal -A must-have title for any library.- --LMC Praise for David Small: Imogene's Antlers Featured Selection for more than 10 years on PBS's Reading Rainbow, California Young Readers Medal The Gardener Caldecott Honor, Christopher Award, ABBY Award Honor Book, 1997, Friends of American Writers (Chicago), First Place Juvenile Literary Award, 1997 So You Want to be President?
