A leprechaun is causing all kinds of trouble on St. Patrick's Day--but our popular Gingerbread Man is back to save the day!

After a mischievous leprechaun makes a mess of the band room, the Gingerbread Man vows to catch him. He follows the leprechaun's clues all around the building finding chaos everywhere--even in the library! But then he finds the worst clue of all. It says the leprechaun's next target might be a house made of gingerbread!

Luckily, the Gingerbread Man makes it to his classroom in time to set a trap for the leprechaun. He'll show that mischief maker that he messed with the wrong cookie this time.

"I'm on a mission! I've got a good plan.
I can catch him! I'm the Gingerbread Man!"

Look for this clever gingerbread man's adventures at the Zoo, in the Fire House, at school, and at Christmas!
