Review

Jack and his mother have no money for food, so they are forced to sell their beloved cow Clover. When Jack swaps Clover for some magic beans his mother is furious and throws the beans out of the window. Overnight, a beanstalk grows that will take Jack on an exciting adventure, where he'll find riches beyond his wildest dreams.

This abridged version of the well-known fairy tale is beautifully illustrated by Tony Ross, and each page is filled with vibrant, colourful drawings in his trademark style. The sturdy board format, with tabs along the edge, make it easy for little hands to turn the pages. A lovely, baby-friendly retelling of a classic.
