Synopsis

The Fort That Jack Built by Boni Ashburn

Boni Ashburn is back with a contemporary family story, again inspired by a classic nursery rhyme. In this take off of the nursery rhyme The House That Jack Built, Jack builds an amazing fort in the middle of the living room. Unfortunately the rest of his family intrudes when they request their supplies back -- there goes the walls and roof! The fort crumbles bit by bit until Grandma comes by with her quilts, for a sweet, family-bonding ending. The text is brought to life by acclaimed illustrator Brett Helquist, whose action-packed style takes this beyond the living room and into adventure.
