THE BUN by Marcia Brown

THE BUN

A Tale From Russia

KIRKUS REVIEW

Cousin to the more familiar gingerbread boy, a round and smiling bun of dough and sour cream successfully evades an old woman, old man, hare, wolf, and bear before a fox, pretending interest in his boasting song, flatters him nearer and nearer. . . then "Snap! That was that!" The crudely contrasting colors and broad, chop-licking expressions suit this version to group consumption; close up, Holdsworth's Gingerbread Boy (1968) is more sustaining.
