Fearsome Giant, Fearless Child : A Worldwide Jack and the Beanstalk Story

by

Illustrations by Julie Paschkis

First Release:

June 2019

ISBN: 9781250151773

The story of a child confronting a man-eating giant or witch is told the world over. These heroes go by many names and might be normal in size or no bigger than a thumb. Though they're often scorned for being the youngest and smallest, they're well-armed with cleverness and courage. Paul Fleischman and Julie Paschkis combine elements of this story from different traditions --Jack and the Beanstalk, Tom Thumb, Kihuo, Vasilisa --to create one narrative, one complete picture of a small boy's triumph.

Author 's note. Full-color gouache illustrations.
