Jack and the Giant A Story Full of Beans Jack lives on a hot Arizona ranch and when a thievin giant has stolen all the cattle Jack trades their old milk cow for some magic beans
This story is a hilarious twist on Jack and the Beanstalk It is set in the Southwest and has some crazy character names that go along great with the setting and that I get a real kick out of such as Annie Okey Dokey and Wild Bill Hiccup For me the illustrations are the most important part of this book On almost every page there is either a cat, rabbit, or some other thing that appears with a little bubble above their heads with really funny sayings inside The illustrations and the little added i [...]

This is a different version of Jack and the Beanstalk I personally like the original better, but this one is okay too I think I would have helped if I remember the original version a lot better I would have this book as an optional reading I think boys would probably like this book better than girls since it s old western like The illustrations are funny and I think the kids would like them.
2.75 StarsI really wanted to like this retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk with a South Western American Flarebut I got boredgh The pictures are fun and well done but I just wanted the story to be over The only fun part is the small bubbles of thought over the cathe wants pizzawhy not The cat is the highlight of the piece
This was a great story It is the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, but told as an American Western, and it has plenty of adult humor thrown in.Its also really fun to read aloud, as I tend to do so with a drawl.
This is a hilarious take on the Jack the Beanstalk idea Set in a old west style them, Jack finds himself facing a giant and a buffalo that poops golden chips Great illustrations and humor throughout, a great read for young and old
Cute parody of Jack and the Beanstalk done in a Western theme Great to discuss the difference from the original and or to ask about how your child would write a version of the story.
Really well written Texas Cowpoke Jack in the Beanstock story Cute and charming illustrastions too
Changed setting for Jack and the Beanstalk Wild West Long.
