I don? know fo? sure if dat story is true,

But down where de Cajuns live on de bayou,

When dey tell dem stories, dey shore like to talk

About dat boy Jacques and his magic beanstalk.

You know the classic story of Jack and the Beanstalk, but you?ve never heard it like this before. Told in Cajun dialect with a distinct bayou flair, this book is perfect for reading aloud. There is even a glossary and pronunciation guide to help! The creators of Petite Rouge (which Publishers Weekly called ?a sassy, spicy outing?) once again deliver a hilarious twist on a well-known fairy tale.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1–3—Artell and Harris's earlier Cajun retellings were celebrated for the clever regional twist they gave to familiar folktales. While Jacques and de Beanstalk uses that same voice, the story itself retains its original structure; there are no roles filled by alligators and no villains defeated with hot sauce. As such, the only value added to the canon by this version is that of accent. The combination of rhyme, rhythm, length, and dialect makes the story rather difficult to read aloud. The author seems aware that this may be the case and provides a glossary and pronunciation guide at the front, along with suggestions for how to emphasize the beats of each verse. A small quibble: the glossary defines "mon dieu" as French for "my goodness"—while this usage is correct, technically it translates as "My God." The illustrations are skillfully rendered in watercolor and pencil with a humorous over-the-top quality that suits the tall tale. The giant in particular is quite grotesque with his overgrown toenails and pointy head. As in this team's earlier books, a mouse (unmentioned in the text) accompanies the hero and takes part in the adventure. While it lacks the clever charm of the earlier volumes, this is a lively Beanstalk story, and it will be enjoyed where its precursors are popular.—Heidi Estrin, Feldman Children's Library at Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FL
