The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is without doubt one of the loveliest retellings of Jack and the Beanstalk.

It really is a little boy’s dream book and as with many of Barefoot’s books it comes with an unabridged CD of the text.

Synopsis

Jack and the Beanstalk by Richard Walker

What happens to Jack when he visits the giant's castle? This work describes Jack's adventure in the Land above the Clouds. It is aimed at schools and nurseries.

Reviews

'One of the year's best children's books - the quintessential dream story is retold' - Newsweek 'Trimmed to a jaunty pace and filled with lively humour - this remains a rousing adventure' - Kirkus Reviews'

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
