The Famous Adventures Of Jack

In The Famous Adventures of Jack the author waves her magic wand and presents us with a world of dragons, magicians, floating castles and beautiful princesses as the mischievous Old Feller Storyteller sends young Jill on her search for someone called Jack. But as Jill discovers, finding the right Jack is not as easy as it first seems, and along the way she encounters brave Jacks, cowardly Jacks, silly Jacks and lazy Jacks, but the Jack she most desires seems to have disappeared in a puff of smoke.

The Famous Adventures of Jack is a deceptively simple, sparkling story that touches on the fairy-tale in all of us and makes excellent reading for children who are confident enough to read alone. It is, however, also ideal for bedtime reading for younger children.
