Once again the best part of Brett's book, imo, is the borders. This sequel has a recipe for gingerbread cookies 'hidden' there. The story and the main illustrations are fine but not amazing. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399251618, Hardcover)

That popular little character is back looking for friends, in an adventure he?ll never forget.

Confident and cocky, the Gingerbread Baby happens upon a bakery, where he dances and prances in front of a sugar cookie girl, trying to make friends. But she just stares and doesn?t say a word, like all the other sweet treats he tries to meet.

Discouraged, the Gingerbread Baby runs home, chased by a long line of hungry creatures, where Mattie has a fantastic surprise for him?gingerbread friends that fill a giant fold-out page.

Irresistible images inside the confectionery and outside in the snowy Swiss countryside will delight Jan Brett fans.
