A visit to a fire house is always fun, but it's even more exciting when the Gingerbread Man comes along!

Guess who gets to go along on a field trip to the firehouse? The Gingerbread Man! But when he falls out of his classmate's pocket, Spot the Dalmatian comes sniffing around. Luckily, this Gingerbread Man is one smart cookie, and he races into the fire truck, up the pole, and all through the station, staying one step ahead of the hungry dog the whole time.


Then an emergency call comes in and the Gingerbread Man knows just what to do:

“I’ll ride to the rescue, as fast as I can.

I want to help, too! I’m the Gingerbread Man!”

With snappy rhymes and fresh illustrations, the Gingerbread Man makes a sweet return in his second school adventure.
