A gingerbread interpretation of “There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe” is on view through Valentine’s Day in the Children’s Department of the Southbury Public Library on Poverty Road. Southbury residents Maryanne (center) and George Muscolino built the structure out of all edible materials. The display, nearly two feet tall, survived a trip to and from the Mohonk Mountain House resort in New Palz, N.Y., where it was awarded fourth prize in the prestigious Hudson Valley Gingerbread Competition. Teen librarian Elizabeth Kelly (left) provided research on the classic nursery rhyme to aid the gingerbread artists in their design. (Dunn photo)
