Summary
Jack and his marvellous beanstalk made their first appearance in England in 1734 and for nearly three centuries, the tale has continued to enchant children. John Cech retells this popular story with humour and warmth, adding plenty of entertaining details and bringing in some less familiar elements, too. Robert Mackenzie's art captures all the magic of the huge beanstalk and the giant's oversized world. Includes notes about the origins of the story
