day an old lady baked a gingerbread man. She
gave him two currant eyes and a cherry for his
nose, then popped him in the oven to bake.
Later, she opened the
oven to take him out, and found that he had
jumped up on his bendy legs. He jumped off the
baking tray, and ran out of the house!
She called to her husband and they both ran
after him, but he was running so fast that they
could not catch him.
He just laughed and shouted,
"Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch
me I'm the gingerbread man !"
