“When I was a kid, my best friend was Josh Funk. Now he’s becoming a friend to a whole new generation.” —B.J. Novak, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Book with No Pictures

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.

He takes his story into his own hands—and you’ll never guess what happens next!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From Jack's point of view This fractured fairy tale brings us behind the scenes of what may have happened when Jack had to sell his cow and planted the beans.

Bright illustrations will have readers smiling and the dialogue will keep them laughing. This would be a great addition to school libraries for students studying retold classics.
