Do you know Jack?



This was our bedtime story last night. The kids picked it up during a recent trip to the library. I was sceptical at first, expecting a politically-correct, watered-down version of an old fairy tale.

Truth be told, there is quite a bit of sugarcoating and tweaking of the story, but there is also a great surprise. The giant takes you on an adventure through Fairy Tale land, where you meet all sorts of Jacks. I forgot how many Jacks there were in this world.

This book introduces you to six Jacks (including the one who climbs the beanstalk)

Could you name them all??

I'll post the list in a day or two.

Six Jacks? Really? Hmmmmm, I don't think I can think of ANY others! Oh wait, does Jack Sprat count? Oh, and then there's Jack from Jack and Jill fame, and Jack be Nimble and his candlestick... do those count?

Jack Squat...?

Ooh, I love a mind bender! But I could only think of 3, and they're the same 3 ValleyGirl said. Darn, I'll have to keep thinking...

Jack and Jill, Jack Spratt, Little Jack Horner, Jack (with the Beanstalk), Jack Be Nimble, ummm... hmm... I am missing one.

Hey, I miss you! Hiiiii!
