In two weeks (on September 19th), my fifth book, It’s Not Jack in the Beanstalk will be released. To celebrate, I’m sending Exclusive Signed “Collector’s Card” Postcards to anyone* that pre-orders or orders** the book for themselves or their school/classroom/library/dentist-waiting-room/etc by October 1, 2017!
Wait, what is this book even about? Here’s what the publisher has to say:
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.
