Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk

We rated this book:


Jack: The True Story of Jack and The Beanstalk is a great book. It is about a boy named Jack, who goes out to find his papa after he was taken by giants! The giants jumped down from the giant world and took every bit and piece that they could grab. The giants took the whole village, including papa, so Jabber, a one-legged tinker, gives Jack some magic beans. Jack plants the magic beans. Soon, they start growing.

After a while, the beanstalk grows so high that Jack can’t see the top of it! Then, he knows it is time to climb. He climbs, and climbs, and climbs for what seems like hours, until he finally reaches the top. He discovers a whole new world…………………..a GIANT world! He tries to find his way through the crowd, but soon he finds himself wandering through a giant kitchen. Then, he meets Martha, a giant cook, and Tom Thumb, a person just like him. Jack and Tom become best friends. Then, Jack tells Tom about his papa. Tom says that Jack should not go, but Jack says that he has to find his papa.

As Jack heads towards the beanstalk, it starts to shake. Jack knows that something is there. He looks under a leaf and finds his little sister, Annabella. Jack does not want her to come, but she really wants to go so Jack lets her come. Together, they face a giant toad, pixies, and defeat a giant king! In the end, they find Papa, and they all go home. Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk is a great book, and I recommend it to adventurous kids ages 8-12.
