Reviews for Gingerbread Rabbit


Horn Book Guide Reviews 2003 Fall
Originally published in 1964, this first of four children's books by the distinguished poet is an alternative take on the story of the Gingerbread Man. This is a marvelous book for reading aloud, with its rich language and Garth Williams's entrancing illustrations (thankfully [cf2]not[cf1] colorized). This edition features a redesigned jacket and a larger trim size. Copyright 2003 Horn Book Guide Reviews
