Jack’s mother has always called him a troublesome boy—but maybe Jack’s adventurous spirit can finally be put to good use when giants fall from the sky and seize his papa right out of the barn. Jack trades his family’s cow for some giant, magical beans that will help him get to the giant world where he is determined to retrieve his papa.

Jack: The True Story of Jack & the Beanstalk is a middle grade retelling. It includes:

• Violence (a couple fistfights, a bleeding wound, and one giant’s death is rather gruesome)
• The main characters are in constant danger
• References to pranks
• A queen says that her husband does not love her; she also says she wouldn’t care if her father went missing

Jack: The True Story of Jack & the Beanstalk is a great book to read aloud to kids, and adults will most likely enjoy the sweet and inspirational story, too.
