“Giddyup, giddyup as fast as you can. You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man!”
The Gingerbread Cowboy can run from the rancher, he can dash past the javelinas, and he can giddyup right by the cattle grazing on the mesa. But what happens when he meets a coyote sleeping in the sun?
Janet Squires and Holly Berry retell this classic tale with a Wild Western flair, filled with rodeo-romping fun.
