This story is about the Gingerbread Man who lives at 398.2 in the library. But he decides one day to run away. He runs through the aisles of the library encountering different characters in different sections of the library.

This book would be perfect for reading with a child while sitting at the library. It is a fast paced and interesting story that includes characters from different parts of the library such as a robot from 629.892. I think every school librarian should own a copy of this book. The illustrations are beautiful, colorful and fun.

As good as this book is, I don't think, however, that it would hold up well out of context for smaller children who do not already understand how to use the library's Dewey Decimal system.
