Publisher Comments:

Jack's turn of fortune signals an exciting new direction for Matt Tavares, whose stunning full-color artwork enlivens this classic gift edition.

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 for the very first time.

About the Author

E. Nesbit (1858-1924) spent her childhood in France and Germany and later lived in England. She began writing stories of fantasy and adventure for children in the early 1890s and is renowned for her very real, strong-willed young characters. Her novels include THE STORY OF THE TREASURE SEEKERS (1898), FIVE CHILDREN AND IT (1902), THE PHOENIX AND THE CARPET (1904), and THE RAILWAY CHILDREN (1906).

Matt Tavares is the illustrator of the seasonal classic 'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS and the author-illustrator of three baseball-inspired favorites: ZACHARY'S BALL, OLIVER'S GAME, and MUDBALL. He lives in Ogunquit, Maine.
