Great resell of classic characters with an Afro centric feel to them. Innocently and tastefully done, but so hard to find and expensive!!! Twice as much is why I paid for these African American fairy tales than the original classics, but worth every penny for young minds to dream and use the power of "what if" . Simple, well done revisions of classics.
I like having a fairy tale with a minority and slightly different story spin.
We love reading this at bedtime. A classic retold with lively, fun illustrations. Well worth it. I've bought a number of books in the series and hope to get the whole set.
The book is in great condition, the only exception being the sales stickers which will likely cause damage when removed.
nice to have books with people that look like me on it is a plus but it is a double plus when i can read them to my child.
I was very happy with this book. It was shipped quickly to my home and the colors in the book are beautiful. This book is very engaging.
Classic read
It is quite a challenge to adapt a classic European tale for a cast of characters of African descent, and make the story relevant and even "believable" for some of our children who are living in hard-knock communities and environments. The author and illustrator of this "Jack & the Beanstalk" seem to accomplish this task by acknowledging some of the unfortunate realities that many of our kids face regularly, such as drunkenness. Designated readers of young children who deal with such issues should find this adaptation of "Jack..." to be a welcome addition to their libraries. By the way, the artwork is terrific! The variety of images of the African-descent characters are worth the purchase.
