Jack the Giant-Killer. When good King Arthur reigned, there lived near the Land’s End of England, in the county of Cornwall, a farmer who had one only son called Jack. He was brisk and of a ready lively wit, so that nobody or nothing could worst him.

In those days the Mount of Cornwall was kept by a huge giant named Cormoran. The story is supposedly related by Gaffer Spiggins, an elderly farmer who also happens to be one of Jack’s relatives. I say, supposedly, in part because by the end of the story, Merryman tells.Multi-headed giants block Jack's attempts to earn his fortune.

He out-wits the entire giant family in a unique and humorous fashion. This is another tale in the ancient American Jack Tale cycle. Salsi, a known interpreter of American folklore, retells the story with magical twists and turns that are matched by Young's dynamic illustrations.

This is yarn-spinning at its best.
