Gingerbreadman

Once upon a time, a little old lady made a Gingerbread man for a treat. She put him in the oven to bake, but after a while she heard a tiny voice crying, "Help! Let me out. " So she opened the oven door.

The little Gingerbread man shot out of the oven and frightened the little old woman ... but she tried to catch him.

The Gingerbread man was too fast. He ran up the road singing,  "Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread man."

Soon the Gingerbread man met a duck.

"Quack, quack. Stop little gingerbread man! I would like to eat you," said  the duck.

But the Gingerbread man was too fast. He ran away singing...  "Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me ... I'm the Gingerbread man."

Soon the Gingerbread man met a cow.

"Moo, moo! Stop little gingerbread man! I would like to eat you," mooed the cow.

But the Gingerbread man was too fast. He ran away singing...  "Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me ... I'm the Gingerbread man."

Further down the road the Gingerbread man met a horse.

"Neigh, neigh! Stop little gingerbread man! I want to eat you," neighed the horse hungrily.

But the Gingerbread man was too fast. He ran away singing... "Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me ... I'm the Gingerbread man."

The Gingerbread man ran faster and faster. Then he met an old fox.

"Stop little gingerbread man, I want to talk to you!" he smiled.

But the Gingerbread man ran away singing...  "Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me ... I'm the Gingerbread man."

But the sly fox said: "I don't want to eat you. I'm your friend."  

Soon they came to a river. The fox said "I'll help you cross the river. Jump onto my tail." So the little Gingerbread man did.

Before long the fox said, "You are too heavy. Jump on my back." So the little Gingerbread man did.

After a while the fox said, "You are too heavy for my back. Jump on my nose." So the little Gingerbread man did.

Finally they reached the other side of the river. The sly fox tilted back his head quickly, tossed the Gingerbread man into the air and opened his mouth.

SNAP!

That was the end of  the Gingerbread man.
