Product Details


Starred Review, Booklist, July 2010:
“An original fairy tale that has the makings of a story-hour classic. . . This standout picture book emphasizes resourcefulness and the power and pleasure of a well-told tale.”

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, July 2010:
“The simple-but-expressive, cartoonish illustrations on textured paper and the delightfully clever design further distinguish this cheerful charmer.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 19, 2010:
The creators of Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! celebrate storytelling with a sparkling specimen of that very thing. . .With muted tones and subtle textures, the pictures capture the tale’s humor and Jack’s earnest nature.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, July 2010:
This entertaining adventure is packed with action. Karas’s schratchy gouache and pencil cartoon illustrations are as detail-rich as the text itself.”
