Shannon and Dean Hale s ever popular classic Rapunzel s Revenge and this graphic novel is a great retelling of the classic fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk Calamity Jack is one of the most brilliant sequels that both adults and children will love for ages.Ever since Jack was a little child, he would always scheme to take other people s possessions to the distress of his hardworking mother One day, however, a giant named Blunderboar came in to Jack s mother s store and while he brought some bread from her, his head smashes the top of the doorway to the store, which upset both Jack and his mother since Blunderboar refused to pay for the damage and Jack and his mother did not have enough money to fix it.So Jack hatched a plan to go into Blunderboar s penthouse to steal his goose to get back at Blunderboar, unfortunately Jack does not know how to get into Blunderboar s penthouse So, Jack buys some magic beans from a mysterious person and when Jack threw the beans into the ground, they grew into a beanstalk and Jack was able to climb onto the beanstalk and get inside Blunderboar s penthouse and steal the goose that laid the golden eggs Unfortunately, the beanstalk ending up uprooting Blunderboar s penthouse and Jack accidentally killed one of Blunderboar s henchmen when he was trying to cut down the beanstalk to stop it from uprooting Blunderboar s penthouse After Jack escapes from the city, Blunderboar is furious and he vows to get back at Jack at all costs.Now that Jack has met up with Rapunzel in the last book, he and Rapunzel go back to Jack s hometown and they discovered that Blunderboar has taken over the city while vicious ant people terrorize the citizens Along with their new ally, Freddie, Rapunzel and Jack try to save the people from Blunderboar s tyranny Shannon and Dean Hale have done it again in this classic retelling of a popular tale Jack and the Beanstalk and they made Jack in this tale just as shrewd and cunning as his original version and children will love the Jack and the Beanstalk reference in this book as it ismodernized since Jack lives in a city in this version Also, Shannon and Dean Hale has done a superb job at telling the story from Jack s point of view instead of Rapunzel s, making the audience relateto Jack as he struggles to become one of the good guys Nathan Hale s illustrations are muchimproved in this book as the characters look much smoother than in Rapunzel s Revenge as Jack and Rapunzel s faces look much smoother and less rough Also, Nathan Hale makes the scenery much different in this book as the book takes place in a city rather than the western ranch city in Rapunzel s Revenge and the city looks like a city from the 1600s Calamity Jack is a great sequel to a brilliant retelling of a classic fairy tale that adults and children will love for many years I would recommend this book from children ages six and up since small children might not understand the fairy tale parody in this book.Review is

thought I would be too Just swallowed this up with ease I still prefer novels but as a graphic novel this is delightful Now I ve read nearly all of Hale s work Reviewed by Sarah Bean the Green Bean

Rapunzel to save the day I m often asked to give booktalks on great books for tweens and I always inlcude the Hale s first graphic novel outing, RAPUNZEL S REVENGE and now CALAMITY JACK These two books are a librarian s dream come true The Hales combine witty dialogue, action and adventure, beautifully detailed artwork, and lots of humor to create the perfect graphic novel I would give this one to anyone who is not convinced in the value of graphic novels or anyone who s a newbie to the style And of course old fans, too The fairy tale of Jack and the Beanstalk is given the steampunk treatment in CALAMITY JACK, and those looking for a great adventure read will devour this one There s even a cute bit of romance thrown in, so I think this book will have wide appeal It is a sequel to RAPUNZEL S REVENGE, but readers don t necessarily have to read the first one to pick this one up The book starts with Jack s past and gives us a little information on how Jack and Rapunzel met, so I doubt readers will feel lost.As I mentioned, the dialogue is very witty there were a few lines I just had to read aloud to my husband because they were too great to keep to myself The artwork is very detailed young Jack is pictured with his tongue out while thinking and we get a glimpse that he hasn t lost this habit as an adult It s this attention to detail that make the art stand out The text and illustrations pair perfectly and work together, which makes this an excellent example of a graphic novel And be sure to check out the inside cover page for a peek at our authors and illustrator snuck into the artwork This is a book to share, to pass around to friends, and re read, because each time you ll see something new I m hoping we can look forward tographic novels from this creative team I d love to see their take on other fairy tales
