Read It's Not Jack and the Beanstalk Online Free - Jack is not fond of the bossy narrator of his fairy tale! When Jack is told to trade his beloved cow Bessie for some magic beans, throw the beans out the window, climb the ENORMOUS beanstalk that sprouts overnight, and steal from a GIANT, he decides this fairy tale is getting out of control. In fact, he doesn’t want to follow the story line at all. Who says Jack needs to enter a life of daring, thievery, and giant trickery? He takes his story into his own hands—and you’ll never guess what happens next!
With laugh-out-loud dialogue and bold, playful art (including hidden fairy tale creatures for kids to find), this Jack and the Beanstalk retelling will have children rolling with laughter till Bessie the cow comes home.

Added July 9, 2017: Having now gotten to see the final version of this book, I think I love it even more. It's creative, unexpected, and hilarious. It left me laughing, and I'm sure kids will be cracking up also at the snarkiness of Jack as he responds to the narrator and questions how the story...

Jack, the giant, and other fairy tale characters talk to the reader in this hilarious new picture book. A MUST read...
