LoveReading View on Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack, his mother and their cow Clover are real characters in Tony Ross’s typically lively version of this much-loved fairy tale. Told in just five scenes, it’s full of drama and a wonderful sense of scale too – the beanstalk is clearly huge, and the giant falls from the top at full speed, the illustration catching him just before he hits the ground with what will certainly be a most satisfying thump! Tony Ross fills every book he creates with wit and invention and this sturdy board book is a perfect introduction to the story. A free audio version, available via a QR code, is an added bonus. ~ Andrea Reece

About Tony Ross

Born in 1938 in Wandsworth, South London, Tony Ross never though about a career in art, but says he fell into it after his dream of being a cowboy disintegrated when a letter he wrote to John Wayne was never replied to.
