9780241017869: Jim and the Beanstalk

What if Jack wasn't the only one to climb the beanstalk? Raymond Briggs brings a new generation to an old tale with humor, math, and imagination.

After discovering a beanstalk growing outside of his window one morning, Jim decides to do what any person in a similar situation would do—he climbs it. At the top he finds the unexpected: a castle and a giant in need of a friend. Children and adults alike will enjoy this fresh take on a classic story. 
“In what could be called a sure read to success, Raymond Briggs projects a proven favorite into the new generation . . . It is a gigantic delight.”—The New York Times 

“A look at what might have happened if there had been a second trip up the beanstalk . . . Magical.”—Publishers Weekly

“A sprightly sequel . . . Silly and engaging with humorous illustrations.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Book Description Hamilton, Bedford, Virginia, U.S.A., 1970. Hardcover. Book Condition: Acceptable. Reprint. 1985 printing of the 1970 edition in accepable shape. (Must confess, I love Raymond Briggs so much that I'd accept almost any condition!). This is a retired public school library book for which binding has been taped into place more than once. bumped corners and edges and spine, but it's wonderfully funny and the actual boards and pages are ok "Hmmm . fried boy!".
