Fairytale Flashback: JACK
FE FI FO FUM! I SMELL THE BLOOD OF OUR THIRD EDITION OF FAIRYTALE FLASHBACK! We’re bringing you a whole mess of Jacks! The Jack and the Beanstalk tale has been reimagined a great deal: some vilifying Jack as the villain, and some trying to explain why that giant was so peeved.
With many thanks to D.L. Ashliman’s folk tale library, (click to view) we’ve got a whole slew of Jack and the Beanstalk variations ripe for the reading – just click here to get to them – but don’t be surprised if they’re less “happily ever after” than you remember!
