Overview

Co-written by New York Times bestselling and Newbery Honor winning author Shannon Hale, this sequel to the highly acclaimed Rapunzel's Revenge is a hilarious tall tale about Jack, his beanstalk . . . and his best-friend-with-wicked-braids, Rapunzel.

Jack likes to think of himself as a criminal mastermind . . . with an unfortunate amount of bad luck. A schemer, plotter, planner, trickster, swindler . . . maybe even thief? One fine day Jack picks a target a little more giant than the usual, and one little bean turns into a great big building-destroying beanstalk.

With help from Rapunzel (and her trusty braids), a pixie from Jack's past, and a man with inventions from the future, they just might out-swindle the evil giants and put his beloved city back in the hands of good people . . . while catapulting themselves and readers into another fantastical adventure.
