"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?
