"Elegant watercolors echoing the burnished gold tones of the rolling fields show well in storyhours." -- School Library Journal

Jack can't seem to do anything useful for his poor mother. He can't even conduct an errand as simple as selling the cow; instead, he trades the beast for a handful of beans. But then, amazingly, those very beans sprout into a towering stalk, elevating Jack to a strange land ruled by a greedy giant. Jack must be clever and brave as he tries to return the giant's stolen treasures to their rightful owner. E. Nesbit's charming, wry retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk was first published in 1908. Preserving the author's unabridged text, this gorgeously designed edition features the dynamic artwork and dramatic perspectives of Matt Tavares, realized in full-color illustrations.

The classical story I read when I were a child, and I have not remembered it for a long long time until I read it to my children in recent time. I realize that this story is still alive in myself and of course in my children.
