The Runaway Chapatti

Originally written for the Cambridge Reading series, this is Carnegie Medal winning author Susan Price’s retelling of the traditional story ‘The Gingerbread Man.’


          'Once a girl made a chapatti for her tea. But the chapatti didn’t want to be eaten. Up from the table it jumped, and out of the door it ran, singing,

"Run, run, as fast as you can,

You can’t put me in your frying pan!"'



     The chapatti leads the girl on a merry chase that involves a friendly dog, a cheeky monkey and a long crocodile before finding a big suprise in the deep jungle!



     The lively illustrations, full of movement and gorgeous colour, will have children asking for the story again and again. The simple tale, humorously told, is ideal for instilling a love of reading, with its repeated refrain, and phrases picked out in speech bubbles, helping children to quickly recognise the key words: 'stop,' 'come,' 'back,' 'and,' 'my,' 'the.'



                                Suitable for ages 3-4.
