From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3 Jack, the not-too-bright, brash young man who sells his cow for beans, foils a giant and gains great wealth in the process, is back again. All of the elements of the English tale are here: Jack's sale of Milky White to a strange little man; the magical growth of an enormous beanstalk; one chorus of "Fee-fi-fo-fum," etc.; three trips up the stalk to strip the giant of his sack of gold, the hen who lays golden eggs and the harp of gold; and finally Jack's hasty trip down and the giant's unceremonious demise. DeRegniers explains that all of the items Jack steals from the giant once belonged to his father, a fact which Joseph Jacobs in English Folk and Fairy Tales (Putnam, 1904; o.p.) chose to omit. Here, though, the tale is retold in verse with a predictable pattern and rhyme which is sometimes broken by an extended line. It does, however, lend itself to being read aloud and could be used for dramatization with children (as a play or a choral reading). Cartoon-like watercolors in soft colors race through the pages to add movement and humor to the text. Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Public Library
