Ruth from Nosy Crow says: If you’ve ever wondered who else lives in the giant's castle, you’re about to find out. Besides the singing harp, the magic goose and the grumpy giant, there’s a baby dragon, a stressed-out cook and a rather anxious little frog. And Jack is determined to help them all. This beautiful retelling, brought to life by Ed’s bright and lively artwork, is all about being brave, kind and helpful. It’s the perfect introduction to a classic fairy tale, and fans of the app are sure to fall for this gorgeous book. Get the app here!

Synopsis

Jack and the Beanstalk by Ed Bryan

When Jack and his mother fall on hard times, they decide to sell their only cow. But Jack's mother is not impressed when her son comes home with a handful of magic beans. The beans go straight out of the window ...where they grow into an enormous beanstalk! At the top of the beanstalk, Jack finds a giant castle in the clouds. Inside, there are lots of people who need his help, there are lots of stolen treasures, and there's a very angry giant. Where will Jack's adventures lead him?

About the Author

Ever since his art teacher told Ed's parents that their son blossomed in the art room, Ed has followed an artistic path, studying industrial design and working as a 3D artist, animator, and illustrator on video games such as Viva Pinata. He likes nothing better than making up stuff and colouring it in. Ed grew up in Suffolk, in a house full of home computers and pencils.
