• A new insight into why Jack really killed the giant
• Stunning illustrations in the style of a Renaissance Old Master
• Classic English folk-tale of brains outwitting strength
Jack and his mother are so poor they have to sell their faithful brown cow. But Jack takes a handful of beans from a stranger in exchange for the animal! His mother is furious but little does she know that these beans are magic and soon will grow into an enormous beanstalk reaching as far as the eye can see.
At the top Jack is thrown into an adventure with a terrifying Giant. Can Jack outwit him and can there be a happy ending?
With striking illustrations by Nina Toewe in an imaginative style inspired by the paintings of Giuseppe Arcimboldo, this is a superb new edition of the classic tale.
