The sourdough man

“I’m the Sourdough Man, and you can’t catch me!” Drawn from traditional European and North American versions of the Runaway Pancake and the Gingerbread Man, Alaska children’s author Cherie Stihler and illustrator Barbara Lavallee have collaborated to create the distinctly Alaskan version of this tale.

Of course, it’s a runaway sourdough loaf that has come to life, and he is eluding all manner of creatures native to the great north: musk ox, lemmings, arctic hares, caribou, marmot, golden eagle. But the arctic fox, it turns out, is both cleverer and hungrier than all the other animals!
