Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk by New York Times Best Selling Author, Liesl Shurtliff. This book is a funny retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk and it is adventurous and determination. Jack along with his sister Annabelle are driven to take back what was stollen from them…stolen by giants that is. This magical tale about believing in the unseen and following your gut. I would recommend this story to children 8 and older, especially to those that love adventure and a great battle with giants.
