This story is about a little boy named Jacques who was poor and needed money to grow crops. Jacques went to town to sell a cow. A man traded Jacques some magic beans for the cow. The are looks both cartoonish and realistic. I think the book will be great for kids and some adults could read it to their children or child. My favorite part is when Jacques was running from the giant. I recommend this to my cousin Dear Marie, from me. I think this would be a good book for ages four through 9.
