  • TITLE:

    Cocoa Cabana



House Description

An alternate unpublished ending to “The Gingerbread Boy” story was unearthed in Bavaria from the musty basement of the story’s author. The tragic ending of the published version of the story, in which the gingerbread boy rides across the river on the back of the deceptive (and hungry) fox, is re-written in the unpublished version… this time with an unfortunate twist of fate for the fox.

In this alternate ending, ‘Gingy’ out-foxes the fox, by promising his furry friend a fine glass of cognac by the fire in his home, to warm his insides, and dry his wet coat of fur after crossing the chilly river….The unsuspecting fox is drawn by Gingy’s warm invitation to join him, and his family, in his chic mod (off-the-grid) ‘Cocoa Cabana’ in the forest….

….Gingy smiles, sits back in his favorite chair, thanks his luck…. and lets the smell of Xmas dinner fill his cabana.
