Jan Brett’s beloved character the Gingerbread Baby returns in a fun-filled Christmas caper!

That means it is time to run away. Clever Matti uses snow to disguise the gingerbread instruments while Gingerbread Baby leads the audience on a merry chase to the smartest hiding place ever--a giant Christmas tree.
