A laugh-out-loud fractured fairytale version of Jack and the Beanstalk, reminiscent of Pratchett in its celebration of humanity in a fantastical world. A fabulous retelling for 8-12s.Vi the Giantess loves little things - her thimble collection is almost out of control. So when a little chap called Jack pops up in her kitchen, her giant heart melts right away. But this Jack is a regular Jack-the-lad, intent on carrying off Vi's husband's treasures and keeping them for himself. Can Vi fight off her instincts and challenge the interloper?
