I have always loved the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. But when I was a little girl, it seemed to me that all the heroes in stories were boys - they always saved the day. Girls in fairy tales usually had to be rescued by the handsome prince, and as a fearless, brave little girl, I didn't see why GIRLS couldn't save the day, so when I rewrote Jack and the Beanstalk, I made Jack a spunky little girl named Waynetta. Language in a story is very important to me, and I think the language is really fun in this retelling, almost as spunky as the little heroine herself.About the Author:
