Random House has just released a brand new book titled "Jack: The True Story of Jack & the Beanstalk," by Liesl Shurtliff. The fairy tale novel follows Jack's giant adventure, but adds a new spin on the classic story.
Here's a description of the book:
"Jack has always been told that giants are not real. But if that's the case, how do you explain the huge, foot-shaped pond in the yard, or the strange storms in which the earth rumbles and dirt rains from the sky? When his father disappears in such a storm, Jack reluctantly, with his bothersome little sister Annabella in tow, gives chase in the only logical way: by trading the family cow for some magic beans that will help them get to the land above the clouds. They arrive to find that the giants themselves have giant-sized troubles. With the help of Annabella, a magic goose, and a chatty cook (who is not interested in grinding human bones into bread, thank you very much), Jack sets out to save his dad."
