      How is the story told The Giant of Jum uses poetry well through using a strong repetition in the giant s dialogue The rhyming sequence of A,B,A,B is an easy and welcoming format too making it accessible and fun for younger readers How do the words and pictures work together Both the poetry and pictures work well with the pictures giving us a greater exploration around the world that the Giant inhabits There are also plenty of allusions to other fairy tales within Benji s pictures I particularly [...]

      A great rhythmic, rhyming read, with fun, detailed illustrations It s a retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk, with the giant helping children out on his way to catch and eat Jack, fee fi fo fums and all, promising to come back and eat them up Thankfully the giant is persuaded not to eat Jack and is satisfied with a giant sized cake Great for reception Y1 to develop phonological awareness as a side effect to a great story, and as part of a topic on fairy tales once children are familiar with Jack [...]

      This book was sent to me to review, I decided to take it into school to read to my class to get their opinion on it I originally thought that this maybe a little young for my year 3 class, but I shouldn t have been worried They loved it They loved the language and the rhyme in the story and found it amusing, they also made the connection to Jack and the Beanstalk but told me they preferred this version They also really loved the illustrations, they are so bright and colourful They said that this [...]

      Anyone has the ability to change, even child devouring giants A companion story to the original, this time its the giant s younger brother who is searching for Jack to have as a snack He unknowingly befriends Jack and the other children and even goes so far as to help them save a cat, retrieve a ball from the fountain, etc They repay him for his kindness with cake, and therefore he has a change of heart and no longer desires to eat them Cute story, but at the same time relatively forgettable.

    7. ESF Tsing Yi says:

      A fun re telling of Jack and the Beanstalk that sees the Giant change his ways when he learns that kindness leads to friendships and cake This clever rhymes make this an entertaining read for adults and children alike One of our K1 students brought this book in during our Stories Unit as a favourite from home, and his class loved it so much we ve bought our own copy for the library

      I have trouble to understand some sentences That is The Giant said, Well, I suppose it won t hurt, but soon, have no fear, I ll be back You d be scrumptious if eaten with cream for dessert just as soon as I ve gobbled that Jack.Why it won t hurt it is what who hurt And have no fear to whom he says to children And did he gobble Jack
