Jasper's Beanstalk by Nick Butterworth & Mick Inkpen

My Review

Jasper's Beanstalk is a very charming but simplistic tale that had us smiling from ear to ear!

Jasper finds a bean on Monday. Every day he does something to help it on it's way to becoming...a beanstalk. The overly enthusiastic Jasper is killing the little bean with kindness and at the end of a long week he admits defeat!

There are lots of lovely little positives throughout throughout this story - it shows that patience is a must have quality, it also gives a fab little insight into gardening basics and even introduces the days of the week in a really fun way. More importantly....never giving up!

The illustrations are gorgeously simplistic and very striking - we just couldn't wait to see what the super adventurous Jasper would do to his bean next.

Jasper's Beanstalk is a lightening quick read that is full of warmth and's definitely memorable!

4 / 5 Stars!
