Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this clever sequel to the familiar story, Jim helps the formerly fearsome giant who has grown old and infirm. Ages 3-7. (May)
Children's Literature - Debra Briatico
Jim finds a beanstalk outside his window and climbs to the top. After he reaches the clouds and enters a big castle, he has breakfast with a far-sighted, toothless, hairless giant who is too old to eat little boys. Jim decides to help the giant by fetching him a new pair of glasses (so he can read books), some new false teeth (so he can chew food), and a fancy red wig (so he can look young again). After the giant celebrates his new appearance, he sends Jim down the beanstalk and tells him to chop it down (because he could no longer fight the temptation of eating Jim with his new teeth). After the beanstalk falls, the giant rewards Jim with a gold coin and a thank you letter.

    Fun for all ages, but especially 4-8 year olds!

    A modern twist on the popular fairy tale, Jim is a helpful boy to a Giant who has "lost his edge". Great lesson on being helpful with a little bit of math thrown in for good "measure".
