Tales Around the World: The Gingerbread Boy

The Ninjabread Man [1] There are lots of stories you can probably rattle off without even thinking much – The Three Little Pigs, The Three Bears, [2]Cinderella, etc. Some of these stories are so commonly told that kids all over the world know them. When the stories are told in different places though, they take on interesting differences that reflect the land and culture where the story is being told.

This page is a list of several versions of the traditional story, The Gingerbread Boy. The stories are either set in a different region or country, are told from a new point of view or have some kind of fun twist to make the story unique. You can watch a retelling of The Gingerbread Boy right now in this video from World Book Day [3].
