What if Jack wasn't the only one to climb the beanstalk? Raymond Briggs brings a new generation to an old tale with humor, math, and imagination. After discovering a beanstalk growing outside of his window one morning, Jim decides to do what any person in a similar situation would do--he climbs it. At the top he finds the unexpected: a castle and a giant in need of a friend. Children and adults alike will enjoy this fresh take on a classic story. "In what could be called a sure read to success, Raymond Briggs projects a proven favorite into the new generation . . . It is a gigantic delight."-- The New York Times "A look at what might have happened if there had been a second trip up the beanstalk . . . Magical."-- Publishers Weekly "A sprightly sequel . . . Silly and engaging with humorous illustrations."-- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
