    "Here is a verse version, first published in England in 1807, of the well-known Jack and the Beanstalk. The jolly pictures by Galdone can stand up to his other fine creations and hold their own."-Publisher's Weekly

    "The lively pictures provide just the right accompaniment; the story begins and ends with scenes of folksy domesticity while the suitably loutish monster, roaring and tipping, overspreads several pages in between."- The Horn Book
