Emily Sullivan | 1 comments This book is probably in the 8-12 age range. It's about a small boy who comes from a family of men all named variants on the name Jack, he too is named something along the lines of Jack. His brothers and father are responsible for the feats heard about in fairy tales such as Jack and the beanstalk and Jack the giant slayer. One day his brothers and father all go missing and it's up the the youngest Jack to go on a quest to find them. Later in the story he climbs a beanstalk and meets the giant. If I remember right I think he also steal the golden goose... I don't actually remember how it ends.
