Jack and The Beanstalk: Classic Storybook Fable Retold: Giant Alien Adventure (Retold Fairy Tales)


JACK AND THE BEANSTALK: Classic Storybook Fable Retold and Reimagined:” storybook tells the classic of Jack as he sold his family cow for some magic beans to the disappointment of his mother. But what really happens when the magic beans actually work know by magic but through technology. The Beans are actually teleportation devices that beam Jack beyond the clouds and unto a giant spaceship. CLASSIC STORY: RETOLD FAIRY TALE WITH UPDATED ETHICAL STANDARDS: This classic tale captures a child’s interest, page after page, as they take their imagination on a magical journey through timeless stories and adventures. In the original story, Jack climbs up the beanstalk and steals from the Giant. First, Jack steals his gold, then Jack steals his hen that lays golden eggs, and Jack also steals the Giant’s Magic harp. At no point in the original story is does Jack’s mother let him know that it is not OK to steal. Jack is not told to take the things back that he stole and neither Jack or his mother apologies for what they have done. The original story implies that it is OK to steal from the Giant and ultimately cause his death because he is a Giant. We have fixed this moral dilemma in this fresh retold version of the class fairy tale.

    Good Story…The Seller Was Amazing.
    I am revising my review because I contacted the seller who explained to me that the original print had been published before revisions had been made. The seller graciously sent me a corrected copy free of charge! I have since re-read the book and once again I am pleased with the moral lesson within this story, which is something I want to emphasize with my students when we do a compare and contrast of different fractured fairytale versions of Jack and the Beanstalk. The moral lesson that most of my students noticed this year was ‘why didn’t Jack’s mother ever acknowledge Jack stealing from the giant?’ Which is indicative of children thinking on a higher level. This story addresses this moral lesson, which I am glad that I will have the opportunity to do next start of school. I like unique twist on classic fairytales and this fits the bill. Specifically, having Jack as a different ethnicity and the metaphysical aspect as well of the space ship. I believe my students will enjoy this version. Thank you again to the seller for sending me a corrected copy.

    There is a good moral in the story. Sometimes kids wants to help but they may do things without understanding the consequences. As adults we need to forgive them. They deserve a second chance.
