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'
