Author/Illustrator Jan Brett will be coming to Joseph-Beth Hometown Booksellers in the Lexington Green shopping center on Thursday, December 1st, just in time for the holiday season!
Jan Brett’s “Gingerbread Christmas” will be a perfect read for many Christmas seasons to come, as her beloved character, the Gingerbread Baby, returns in a fun-filled Christmas caper.
Gingerbread Baby and his friend, Matti, take his gingerbread band to the Christmas Festival where they are a hit, until the aroma of gingerbread reaches the children, signaling it’s 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!
Kirkus Reviews says, “Fans of Brett’s intricately detailed illustration style will find this a sweet treat.”
Brett will appear at the store, located at 161 Lexington Green Circle, at 10:00 a.m., along with “Hedgy,” the beloved character from her book, “The Mitten.”
