Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Shaq and the Beanstalk and Other Very Tall Tales is written by "NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal!" "Shaq and the Beanstalk," "Little Red Riding Shaq," "Shaq and the Three Bears," and three others are retold in a hip-hop style. Shaq overpowers the stories like he dominates the court, but in terms of originality, this book is as big a bust as all the backboards the superstar has shattered. If you're retelling, be original. Most people grew up with a favorite fairy tale. When you get famous, you get to retell it. Just do it well. 1999, Scholastic, Ages 4 to 8, $15.95. Reviewer: Susie Wilde
