#MMBBR #Review #Giveaway #ItsNotJackAndTheBeanstalk by @joshfunkbooks @edwardiantaylor

“When I was a kid, my best friend was Josh Funk. Now he’s becoming a friend to a whole new generation.” —B.J. Novak, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Book with No Pictures
Jack is not fond of the bossy narrator of his fairy tale! When Jack is told to trade his beloved cow Bessie for some magic beans, throw the beans out the window, climb the ENORMOUS beanstalk that sprouts overnight, and steal from a GIANT, he decides this fairy tale is getting out of control. In fact, he doesn’t want to follow the story line at all. Who says Jack needs to enter a life of daring, thievery, and giant trickery? He takes his story into his own hands—and you’ll never guess what happens next!
With laugh-out-loud dialogue and bold, playful art (including hidden fairy tale creatures for kids to find), this Jack and the Beanstalk retelling will have children rolling with laughter till Bessie the cow comes home.

A delight of a read, this story is so brilliant and fun.  It is fun as a read aloud and a delight to read alone.  I read it a few times and laughed each time.  The illustrations are bright, funny and add so much  to this richly written story.  Kids and and adult alike are going to love this book.  A must for the classroom and home library.
