Book Review | Gingerbread Funnies
Title: Gingerbread Funnies
Author: Adam Scheff
I don’t know if Gingerbread Funnies will be spending much time on my bookshelf. I think once we make it through Halloween, it’ll be sitting right on my coffee table, as a conversation piece, throughout the holiday season. (Yay! The holidays are coming!)
The book is small and is so visually appealing, it really should be displayed. But it’s the contents that will really win you over.
The concept behind Gingerbread Funnies is a witty one. On each page is a drawing of a gingerbread man, on a plate, with a title. For instance, the “Bad Tattoo Gingerbread Man” has “EAT ME” written across his chest. The “Phantom of the Cookie Jar” has a gingerbread man with a cape and the Phantom half-mask. The “Gingerbread Protester” is holding a sign that reads, “EAT MORE PIE!”
I love the “Incognito Gingerbread Man,” who is wearing the funny nose and glasses disguise.
The majority of the drawings in the book will be understood by children and adults; but a couple of them are a little more mature (such as “Gingerbread Proctologist” and “Alien-Probed Man”). But that’s about as racy as it gets.
Gingerbread Funnies is cute and charming. It will be a nice addition to your holiday décor as well as make a fun stocking stuffer.
I received a copy of this book to review but I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while reading this novel.*
