This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In this beloved tale, Jack can't seem to do anything useful for his poor mother. He can't even conduct an errand as simple as selling their cow; instead, he trades the beast for a handful of beans. Jack watches in amazement as his magic beans grow into a beanstalk that reaches beyond the clouds, elevating Jack to a strange land ruled by a greedy giant. Jack must be clever and brave as he tries to return the giant's stolen treasures to their rightful owner. Children will eagerly continue reading to see whether Jack can sneak past a hungry giant to rescue the golden harp. Beautifully illustrated, this classic tale will capture children's interest and spark their imagination, inspiring a lifelong love of literature and reading.

From Publishers Weekly

19 June 2006 – The classic tale of boyhood spunk and upward mobility gets a solid retelling here. Smith's brisk, matter-of-fact narrative allows the story's inherent momentum, magic and music—including the familiar refrain of "Fee-fi-fo-fum!"—to shine through. Spanish artist Salán's crisp ink lines and sunny, neatly applied watercolor wash display a comic-strip sense of composition and character (especially Jack's openhearted face, dots for eyes, and pointy pug nose). Interestingly, Salán chooses not to illustrate the story's most dramatic moment, when Jack commands his mother to "Bring me the axe!" and chops down the beanstalk while the giant descends. Instead, a final chase among the clouds gives way to a scene of a now elegantly dressed Jack and his mother calmly gazing down from the clifftop, where the only reminder of the giant's demise is "a single red boot nestled in a treetop far below." That may actually be a plus for younger audiences who find the giant's rage too scary. All ages.
