I thought this book would be cute and well illustrated for my grandchildren (ages 6, 4, 2, and 2). However, the story is dark and disturbing and I'm going to throw the book away. I don't even want to return it so that other children could pick it up. The story is about a greedy old man (Jack) who meets a strange man (who "some even said he was the devil)". In the end when Jack dies he is "condemned to wander the earth in search of a home." Very dark story that would give small children nightmares!

This book is great for older children, but if you're looking for
This book is great for older children, but if you're looking for a Halloween book for your 4 year old, like I was, definitely don't get this one. It's a little too deep for that age group since it addresses "evil", how Jack made a deal with the devil, etc. Other than that, it's written well and the illustrations are very nice!Was this review helpful?
