Jack And The Beanstalk - Retold By John Cech

This is the best rendition of Jack's story that I have ever read!  Jack does steal the giant's most prized possessions, in order to provide for he and his mother, but neither the golden eggs nor the gold coins lasts forever.  In this unique version of the tale, the giant's wife decides to leave her husband, following Jack down the beanstalk and later becoming one of his mother's dearest friends. Very soft and delightful illustrations accompany the narrative.
