 "I'm the Gingerbread Baby,"
Clever as can be.
You can look everywhere,
But you'll never see me!

      When the gingerbread Baby hears about the Christmas Festival, he wants to rush down to the village with his band. The only trouble is, he doesn't have a band! Quickly, Matti figures out a way to make gingerbread instruments, and off they go.
     The band's music is a hit until a little girl smells the delicious aroma of gingerbread wafting down from the bandstand. The Gingerbread Baby knows it's time to run away, but he keeps on singing while the gingerbread instruments dash off to find Matti, who is waiting to disguise them.
     The the Gingerbread Baby back flips into the snow and races for the giant Christmas tree, with hungry children and excited animals chasing after him.
     When they get to the tree, there is no sign of the Gingerbread Baby. Where can he be?
