Waynetta and the cornstalk: a Texas fairy tale

Summary:

Times are tough on a Texas ranch, and when Waynetta trades their last longhorn for a handful of so-called magic corn, her mom is upset.

Comment:

A retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk, this is a beautifully illustrated picture book with a daring and inquisitive heroine who saves the family farm. This humourous fast-paced adaptation will be appreciated by children.
