  • I loved this graphic novel for kids The pictures were amazing and the story was very classic As a mom, I really loved all the pages in the back with super simple word definitions, discussion questions, and I will definitely be purchasing this book for my kids

  • Out of all the Graphic novel Fairy tales in this series, Jack and the Beanstalk is the best I thought the illustrations had of a graphic novel feel than the previous books The story was also than just a summary common to the other books I really liked that this version had Jack reclaiming his families lost treasure from the Giant rather than just being a mischievous thief The story is ended very quickly and could have used another panel or two Other than that it is a popular title in our libra [...]

  • This graphic novel tells the traditional, Disney esque story of Jack and the Beanstalk The fact that it is a graphic novel really doesn t add anything to the story The plot is the same and there is still text at the bottom of each picture The only real difference is that speech bubbles are used, and there are multiple scenes on some pages This isn t a great read, but perhaps could be used to students as a non example of how the format of a book can enhance the story or not, in this case.

  • Be he alive or be he dead, I ll grind his bones to make my bread This retelling appealed to my comic book loving kid and was faithful enough to the classic version to please his literature loving mom The illustrations could have been better, but the history of the story, writing prompts and discussion questions are worth the cost of the book I m used to seeing comprehension questions touted as discussion questions in books for readers at this level These actually fired up a dialogue between my s [...]

  • I just discovered this great little gem I borrowed if from the library after reading about it It is one that I would like to own My kids ages 5 7 giggled at the expressive Jack and his crazy hair They loved the dialogue After we finished reading they immediately turned back to re read their favorite funny parts and then acted it out themselves twice I will certainly be checking out the rest of this Graphic Spin series For a great discussion about graphic novels check out Shannon Hale s blog.

  • In this modern spin on a classic tale, Jack sells his mother s cow for five magic beans, which grow into a sky high bean stalk overnight When Jack climbs to the top of the bean stalk he finds that a mean giant and his kind wife live there Jack realizes that the giant killed his father and is determined to make the giant pay Jack takes only what the giant stole from his family and soon the giant meets the same fate Jack s father did.I love the pictures from this graphic novel and how in the end, [...]

  • Great retelling and cool artwork It made the list of top 20 books preferred by struggling 4th and 5th grade readers Renaissance Learning puts out a What Kids Are Reading study each year where oddly enough kids share the titles of the books they most enjoy reading This book made the 2011 list And for good reason If you ve got a kids who think they don t like reading give them this book and prove them wrong.

  • My class of first graders read this last week during their fairy tales unit I liked that my mentor teacher used this because it introduced a new kind of genre to them Most of them had never seen a graphic novel before, and the story was also different from the original fairy tale This then lead them to looking at the similarities and differences between the two stories, as well as the differences and similarities between the two kinds of novels.

  • Another classic fairy tale redone as a graphic novel comic book This one is actually like the original book than I remember I d recommend it for grades 4 and 5 because their may be some words that younger grades may not know.

  • This was a pretty standard telling of Jack and the Beanstalk or in this case Jack and the Magic Beans It was helpful for adding a lot of words to my Spanish vocabulary, but wasn t as detailed as some of the versions I d heard when I was younger.

  • In a set borrowed together from the library, my 8 yr old son awarded this tale 5 stars, Hansel Gretel 1 star and Cinderella 3 stars.

  • i love this book and a graphic novel is great too i love that is is said to be extremely close to one of the original stories.

  • A good introduction to graphic novels and comics, but the family living happily ever after solely because of their riches didn t sit well with me.

  • This is a cool series graphic novelizations of fairy tales It cuts out on the wordiness that can sometimes accompany a traditional fairy tale The kids and I both enjoyed this story.

  • Not as fun as I thought it would be, but I think the kids will enjoy it I liked the information at the end of the book.

  • The very traditional story with modern illustrations Nothing to complain about with this straight forward rendition.
