Illustrator Stimpson’s authorial debut gives Jack and the Beanstalk a needed overhaul, infusing the story with humor, warmth, and an evocative Depression-era setting... A lovely if ambitious bedtime readaloud whose cinematic artwork enthralls.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Stimpson’s authorial debut is a remaking of the timeless fairy tale that includes both a wonderfully fleshed-out city circa the 1930s and an ending that is happy for everyone.
