I was really excited when I saw this book online because I grew up with the wonderful rhythm of This is the house that Jack Built. But this version, while holding true to the rhythmic originality of the poetry, lost it's value with the poor illustrations! The illustrator used various fonts, sizes and colors all on the same page - making it look all jumbled and almost impossible for a kid to read.Was this review helpful?

I also did not like the "killing" in the story - I find myself choosing another word when I'm reading it to my kids. I will try to find another version of this poem in a book.
