Booklist - 11/15/1999 Once again Brett has given her own special spin to a classic. Obnoxious, cocky Gingerbread Baby is definitely a cookie for the millennium. Equally modern is his owner, Matti, a Swiss boy who bakes Gingerbread Baby all by himself. As the escaped cookie wreaks havoc on the snow-covered village, it is pursued by the expected cast of animals and town folk. Meanwhile, Matti is at home working diligently on a surefire plan to catch his errant creation, with his progress monitored in side-panel pictures. Brett's signature artwork is intriguingly detailed and delightfully old-fashioned: the Swiss locale gives the book a wonderful holiday feeling, as do the cookies and confections that decorate the picture borders. A special lift-the-flap illustration at the back reveals how clever Matti eventually triumphs. (Reviewed November 15, 1999) - Copyright 1999 Booklist.
