Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Jack's mother asks him to sell the cow because their finances are exhausted. Along the way to the market, Jack decides to sell the family cow for a handful of magic beans. In frustration his mother tosses them out the window. Being magic beans, they do indeed grow to a fantastic height. Jack climbs the beanstalk and faces the giantess and her husband. He takes a bag of gold coins. Warned not to go again, Jack can't resist and on this trip he takes the goose that lays golden eggs. Although severely warned by his mother, Jack makes yet another trip and takes the magic singing harp, who alerts her master to the theft. Jack and his mother chop down the beanstalk, killing the giant, and live very happily ever after. In this version the author makes it clear that the giant had stolen things from the family and killed the father, so Jack is merely retrieving what is rightfully his. The version of this fairy/morality tale is the one I remember hearing as a child and it will probably stand up better than most versions. A "Brighter Child Keepsake Story." 2002, McGraw-Hill Children's Publishing,

    Loved this as a kid, now my kid loves it

    The story of Jack and the Beanstalk is a variation of every dream every child in the world has - Have good luck and get rich quick. I loved this book as a kid and now my kid loves it as well, since it has sadness, then opportunity, then intrigue, then terror, and then finally achievement and happiness. All of the ingredients of a great story.
