About the Book

A leprechaun is causing all kinds of trouble on St. Patrick's Day—but our popular Gingerbread Man is back to save the day!

After a mischievous leprechaun makes a mess of the band room, the Gingerbread Man vows to catch him. He follows the leprechaun's clues all around the building finding chaos everywhere--even in the library! But then he finds the worst clue of all. It says the leprechaun's next target might be a house made of gingerbread!

Luckily, the Gingerbread Man makes it to his classroom in time to set a trap for the leprechaun. He'll show that mischief maker that he messed with the wrong cookie this time.

"I'm on a mission! I've got a good plan.
I can catch him! I'm the Gingerbread Man!"

Look for all of this hilarious Gingerbread Man's adventures: The Gingerbread Man Loose at School, The Gingerbread Man Loose on the Fire Truck, The Gingerbread Man Loose at Christmas, The Gingerbread Man Loose at the Zoo, and The Gingerbread Man and the Leprechaun Loose at School!
