Calamity Jack by Shannon and Dean Hale

Ursula,   18   
Calamity Jack   
Shannon and Dean Hale   
Bloomsbury Children's Books    2010
    Set during the 1800's in a steam-punk/fantasy setting, it retells the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, adding a few interesting twists, including Rapunzel with her lasso-braids, a pixie sidekick, and their attempt to foil the empire of the notorious giant Blunderboar.    It was interesting.      
Rating: 4 Better than most
