A Gingerbread Fire Man?

The Gingerbread Man Loose on the Fire Truck by Laura Murray, illustrated by Mike Lowery is the 2nd Gingerbread Man book by this duo.
Smuggled along on the field trip to the fire station, the Gingerbread Man is chased by the station's Dalmation, Spot, then goes on a run when a fire breaks out.
These quirky pictures are in the cartoon style with panels and some full-page spreads.  The text is rhyming and the pictures are lively, both keep the story moving right along.  This is a good read aloud for Kindergarten through 3rd grade. It would be a terrific tie-in for October, which is Fire Safety month.
