Praise for The Gingerbread Man: Buttons on the Loose:

“Murray’s rhyming text lends itself well to a read-aloud but will also hold solo readers’ attention. Lowery’s artwork uses an effective combination of full-page images and paneled scenes. . . No doubt fans of the picture books starring this edible detective will enjoy this tale.” –Kirkus Reviews

“It’s winning times two in this breezy summation of the frustration and triumph surrounding a beloved lost object, embodied by one smart cookie who’s also cute as a button.” –Publishers Weekly
