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.

Jack and the Beanstalk Synopsis

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?
