Princess Sophie is fed up. She's EXHAUSTED and it's all because that grumpy old giant can't sleep - his stomps and stamps keep everyone awake ALL night. But Princess Sophie is a resourceful sort of girl and, as she reads her favourite book of fairy tales, she wonders if she might just have the answer. She bravely climbs the beanstalk and takes a tasty bowl of porridge, a teddy to cuddle and even a cosy blanket - all to help the giant sleep. But, oh dear, nothing works until finally Sophie hits upon the perfect thing - the giant needs a bedtime story! Phew! Everyone lives (and sleeps) happily ever after but when Sophie then teaches the giant how to read himself, it is the most perfect ending of all.

Review:

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.
--School Library Connection
