About the Book/CD
You probably know Jack as a mountaineer of beanstalks, but have you heard about his roles as story spinner, world-renowned hunter, or thief? There''s more to wily Jack than you ever thought possible, but now you have the chance to hear and read the REAL story behind Jack! Honest!
Unlike many other storyteller CDs, You Don''t Know Jack also comes with a book, complete with illustrations. The stories are written to be read and told to be heard; the written version is not a word-for-word transcription of the CD, which means you can appreciate both on their own merits!
So if you get the book/CD, it''s like getting a two-for-one deal! This is tiny tome of classic tales that appeals to all your senses (if you''re adventurous enough!).
