About the Author

Caryl Hart is a children's writer who also runs creative workshops with local schools. She lives in Derbyshire, England, with her guitar-playing husband, two cheeky daughters, one extremely fluffy black cat, a goldfish, four hens, and a dog named Roo. As well as writing, Caryl Hart loves walking in the hills, swimming, snuggling, baking, weeding, running, sleeping, chatting, and sitting in cafés.

Sarah Warburton grew up in North Wales. She studied illustration at the University of the West of England and hasn't looked back since. She has created many books and illustrated the Rumblewick series, which has sold worldwide and is under movie option. Sarah Warburton lives in England with her husband, two children, and a grumpy guinea pig.

Reviews

In addition to her refreshing twist on "Jack and the Beanstalk," Hart also reverses traditional gender roles: the king cooks, and the queen chops wood. Young readers may not notice, but adults will appreciate the shift. Warburton's bright mixed-media artwork provides a playful stage for Sophie's colossal adventure. A clever fractured fairy tale that princes and princesses of all ages will enjoy.
--Kirkus Reviews

Rhyming text, detailed illustrations with non-stereotypical characters, and familiar storylines create a very entertaining tale.
