Genre: Picture Book, Fractured Fairy Tale

Synopsis:  Could you stay out all night in the dark even if... "there were spiders dangling over your head and ... snakes slithering around your feet and ... "A BIG, HAIRY, KID-EATING MONSTER on the prowl? Would you just tell them to go away? Oh yeah? In this rollicking tale about the creatures that might lurk in the night, two boys with very big imaginations prove they are so brave, so cool, they could face even ... Wait, did you hear a noise in the bushes?
From Good Reads

Review: This is a cute story about what happens after Jack takes the items from the giant and chops down the beanstalk.  Jack and his mother had moved to a cabin the North Carolina.  It's a fun story about how Jack tries to outwit the giant but how the giant tries to outwit Jack. I really liked Jack's calm attitude in this book.   My kids really enjoyed this book and have reread it several times.

Rating: 3 1/2 stars
