A long time ago in CandyCane Lane there lived a little gingerbread monster named Gilbert. Gilbert spent most of his days alone. He didn’t have many friends because every time he came near to some other monster he would eat them. But Gilbert did have one monster friend named Nightcap. Nightcap was a furry cat that had spikes for fur. Gilbert and Nightcap always hung out together. During Christmas time Gilbert always gets scared (because he is the gingerbread monster) he is afraid that someone would eat him up.
