Jack thinks of himself as a criminal mastermind with an unfortunate amount of bad luck. A schemer, a trickster …maybe even a thief?
But, of course, he’s not out for himself he’s trying to take the burden off his hardworking mum’s shoulders. She’d understand, right? He hopes she might even be proud. Then, one day, Jack chooses a target a little more …’giant’ than the usual, and as one little bean turns into a great big building-destroying beanstalk, his troubles really begin.
But with help from Rapunzel and other eccentric friends, Jack just might out-swindle the evil giants and put his beloved city back in the hands of the people who live there …whilst catapulting them and the reader into another fantastical adventure.

So, I started on this one, almost as soon as I’d finished the first in the series, Rapunzel’s Revenge. And I’m pleased to say, this one is just as much fun, with the same fun style, great one-liners and artwork. Where the first book was Rapunzel’s story, this one fleshes out Jack’s life, and we get to know a little of his history, before he left home and ended up meeting Rapunzel. The adventure, however, isn’t lost and is just as entertaining.
