The Gingerbread Boy is a story that takes place at the home of a little old woman and a little old man who don't have any children. So the little old woman makes a Gingerbread Boy.
When the Gingerbread Boy came out of the oven, he ran away. He didn't want to get eaten and thought he was very smart, so he ran away as fast as he could.
With everyone not too far behind, the Gingerbread Boy came to a river and entrusted a fox to take him across.
While he's on the fox's back, the Gingerbread Boy thinks he was so clever, he out-smarted a little old woman, a little old man, a cow, a horse, a barn full of threshers and a field full of mowers.
But what he doesn't know is that you can't out-smart a fox.
The Gingerbread Boy is a fun story and will continue to entertain children for generation to come.
