Multi-headed giants block Jack's attempts to earn his fortune. He out-wits the entire giant family in a unique and humorous fashion. This is another tale in the ancient American Jack Tale cycle. Salsi, a known interpreter of American folklore, retells the story with magical twists and turns that are matched by Young's dynamic illustrations. This is yarn-spinning at its best.
Author Lynn Salsi was nominated for a Pulitzer for her work with Ray Hicks and The Appalachian Jack Tales.
