“Stop, little gingerbread man! ” cried the little old man and the little old woman. But the gingerbread man wouldn’t stop! The gingerbread man did not wish to be eaten, and so he shouted… “Run, run, as quick as you can. You can’t catch me – I’m the gingerbread man! ” And off he ran, all the way along the street towards the garden gate.
