Nice Illustrations Jul 8, 2007
The strength of this book is the illustrations. Great style, I think, very nice colors and pictures. The writing is adequate. My 3 y.o. loves it. I am very happy with the purchase.
Good Book Jan 27, 2004
Would you ever want to face a giant ogre? That's what happens to Jack in Jack and the Beanstalk retold by Val Biro. Jack trades a cow for magic beans that end up growing into a beanstalk. I like this book because it is exciting. I like all the characters in the book, especially the giant. Jack plants the missing beans, see what grows!
witty and imaginative Jul 29, 2001
This is a witty and imaginative retelling of the classic story. We have owned this book for almost a year now, and among scores of other books, it continues to be the favorite among both my 1-1/2 year old and my 3 year old boys. It is exciting without being too frightening, and can be used as the basis for a lot of imaginative play.
A Classic Tale Modernized Jan 17, 2000
Newsweek recently did an article on top picks of children's book. This one was one of them. We purchased it and I concur. My just turned 4 year old daugther loves the tale and sits close waiting for me to turn the page. The illustrations our lively and fun and keep the kids interested. This is a must for your child's book collection.
A famliar tale modernized. Jan 17, 2000
Well, I've been telling my daughter and her friends about the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk for a while now...not really remembering how the tale goes and making things up as I went along. I saw a review in Newsweek that rated this particular version of the tale very highly. I purchased it and concur w/ Newsweek's review. It's a wonderful version of the classic story. My daughter loves it as well. We're starting a story time in our community and it's the first book I'm going to read to the kids...The modernized illustration gives the story life and keeps my 4 year old child interested until the next page. It's a great addition to your child's collection.
