Kate and the Beanstalk


  • With her Princess Leia-style hairdo, a few disguises and a can-do attitude, Kate comes across as a real action heroine, whether setting off determinedly with the family cow, nipping up the beanstalk or pedaling an eggbeater to assist the giantess in preparing breakfast. There’s much to enjoy in this spunky picture book, which puts a fresh face on an old favorite.
