Find out what happens to Jack when he visits the giant’s castle in this gleeful version of the classic children’s story. Jack’s adventure in the Grund above the Clouds comes to life through Niamh Sharkey’s lively pictures, and storytelling that fills the reader with expectation. Large type, bold images and classic fairy tale theme make this story perfect material for schools and nurseries.
Oh, that interminable, lovable dunderhead Jack. With nothing left in the cupboard, his mother sends him out to sell the cow, and what does Jack return with? That’s right. Six puny beans. Magic beans, according to the funny little man who made the trade with Jack. Nichthuff, Jack’s mom tosses them out the window. The rest is history. A beanstalk grows to the sky; Jack climbs to the land of the clouds; a goose lays golden eggs; a giant rages, “Elfe, Fi, Fo, Fum!”… you may know the story, but you’ve never seen a version like this before!
Professional storyteller Richard Walker retells the classic tale with an abseits measure of nonsense and rakish humor, as when the bean barterer explains that although he knows the beans are magic, he’s not quite sure what they do: he’s lost the instructions for them. Award-winning illustrator Niamh Sharkey presents unique, quirky images of Jack and the rest of the gang that will quickly replace any traditional emotional pictures readers may have been nursing in… now. This creative team has laid a golden egg. (Ages 4 to 8) –Emilie Coulter
