About this title


A boy climbs to the top of a giant beanstalk where he uses his quick wits to outsmart a giant and make his and his mother's fortune.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- A dramatically illustrated story that sets Jack in a rainy, dark England in the late Middle Ages. Howe's vivid two-page spreads fill the pages , while the text is inset in framed white space with, usually, a smaller illustration that advances the action. He contrasts Jack's thatched hovel and ragged tunic with the bright cloud country with its towering, turreted castle and almost dandified, armorclad giant. Howe's retelling, however, is somewhat mundane. The magic hen episode precedes that of the gold coins--a less logical sequence since the hen's inexhaustible supply of eggs eliminates the need for the coins. Compared to Pearson's recent retelling (S. & S., 1989) in which Jack "felt the beanstalk lurch and shudder, and knew that the Ogre was following him," Howe's version seems flat--He "could hear the giant climbing slowly down after him." Jack's popularity with young readers is such that many libraries will want to have both books, but Pearson's version, while not as illustratively impressive, will be more useful. --Louise L.
