Kate and the Beanstalk

Amazon.com Rating:

"I smell the blood of an Englishwoman. Be she alive or be she dead, I'll grind her bones to make my bread."

Mary Pope Osborne's funny, magical retelling of a favorite tale and Giselle Potter's enchanting illustrations feature Kate, a new and inspiring heroine for today's audience. Readers will cheer on this resourceful, gutsy girl as she outsmarts the famously greedy giant.

"Osborne's telling (aside from the gender switch) remains fairly faithful to the original: the hungry mother sends her child out to sell the cow, the cow is traded for magic beans, the angry mother tosses the beans out the window, a beanstalk grows, the hero(ine) climbs it, and vanquishes the evil giant, winning treasure in the process. A surprise ending (for Kate, anyway... astute readers may guess the outcome) gives the tale an extra jolt of happily-ever-after." -- Emilie Coulter, Amazon.com reviews
