My rating: 4 of 5 stars

* Note: Review of Advance Reader Copy | Book Release Date: 9/19/17

You may think you know how everything went down with Jack that fateful day the beanstalk grew in his yard; well that is if you believe what the narrator has been telling you. But guess what? Jack doesn’t need any mean old narrator to be the boss of him! That’s right. This is Not Jack and the Beanstalk. Jack has his own ideas about how he believes the story should go and he’s going to do something about it!

It’s not really the fairy tales that my students like so much anymore as it is the fractured retellings of these beloved stories. It’s Not Jack and the Beanstalk is exactly what our kids love to read because it is hilarious and it is filled with illustrations (by Edwardian Taylor) that help bring the story to life with robust colors and delightful characters. It is my firm belief that no child (or adult for that matter) is too old to enjoy an awesome picture book like this one. Happy reading!

  1. “It’s not really the fairy tales that my students like so much anymore as it is the fractured retellings of these beloved stories.” I hadn’t thought about it this way, but this is SO true. The fractured tales are often so much more entertaining to them. Can’t wait to read this one!
