Mary Pope Osborne and Giselle Potter’s funny magical retelling of a favorite fairy tale featuring Kate a new and. This feminist twist on the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk really resonanted with me I think this would so excellent to be included in a classroom for girls and boys to experience the idea that yes girls can be heroines even against great odds In this version written by Mary Pope Obsorne and illustrated by Gisele Potter in sort of a Picasso way I can't remember what period of his artistic life the opening endpages lead you right to the heart of the story the castle How she disguises herself and the drawings that show those are just delightful The way the story is laid out in text is really strong and different from the original version the words become alive ie see the pages each time Jane reaches the castle I think this would be a great educational tool for younger grades so that the students hear than one possibility But as a writing illustrating assignment it could mentor the older students to create their own version and story line the only rule being that they have to stay within the basic lines of the tale That could be a really rich creative avenue all ages

Review Kate and the Beanstalk

Kate and the BeanstalkInspiring heroine Fee Fi Fo Fum’un I smell the blood of an Englishwoman Be she alive or be she dead I'll grind he. Surprisingly this book stood fairly true to the story that I grew up knowing of Jack and the Beanstalk Instead of Jack being the main character it was a girl named Kate However the ending had a fun twist to it The castle to where the beanstalk led to once belonged to a noble knight and his wife They had an infant but the noble knight was killed by the giant and the wife and her child had to live below In the end we discover that Kate was the infant and her mother was the wife to noble knight Of course there is a happy ending when the giant dies but again this book had a bit of uniue twist to it Also the author added another twist by including a fairy who tested Kate to see if she was worthy of her inheritance The book gives this feel of a princess story but without the prince I think kids would enjoy the book but I wasn't to big of fan of the illustrations I find it fun to look for childhood stories and read different endings
