Ginger Village Panic
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     The people of Ginger Village ran for their lives. They hid behind cookie doors and under cracker chairs. The giants were coming!
 
2     Ted Gingerbread had been the first one to spot the large beings. He left Sugar Plum Hill to spread the word.
 
3     "Giants are coming! No one is safe!" he cried as he ran down Jelly Bean Lane. Up and down the streets he went. In Candyland Park gingerbread boys and girls stopped skating and sledding. The marshmallow snowball fight was forgotten. Children pointed at the giants. They were far away but coming closer.
 
4     "Everyone hide!" Ted cried. He waved his arms at the gingerbread men and women who came out of their homes. People called their gingerbread dogs and cats to come inside. Mothers called for their children. All play and work stopped as the village people heard Ted's warning.
 
5     P. J. Gingerbread did not run home. He climbed a gumdrop tree. That way he could see the giants better. Seven of them were coming. They walked and talked as they came closer. They had funny, hairy heads. Their grins were not made with icing. P. J. had never seen anything like them! They were scary looking!
 
6     P. J. jumped down and ran to meet his friends. They had hidden in Candy Cane Woods.
 
7     "What did you see?" Taffy Gingerbread asked. Her hair bow was hanging off the side of her head.
 
8     "They do not look like us," P. J. said, panting, "and they look hungry!"
