Jack and the Beanstalk

Write a Review

This is a humorous and warm retelling of a popular story, with plenty of entertaining detail and some less familiar elements too. It features illustrations that capture all the magic of the huge beanstalk and the giant's oversized world up in the clouds. It is suitable for children aged 4 to 7 years old. Jack and his marvellous beanstalk made their first appearance in England in 1734 and for nearly three centuries the tale has continued to enchant children. After all, what could be more reassuring to a small child than the idea that even a little boy can outwit a scary giant? John Cech retells this popular story with humour and warmth, adding plenty of entertaining detail and bringing in some less familiar elements, too. And Robert Mackenzie's art captures all the magic of the huge beanstalk and the giant's oversized world up in the clouds.
