Jack and the Beanstalk

By Vivian French
Illustrated by Harry Horse

A dramatic version of a traditional story in which children join in taking different parts of the reading.

Walker Story Plays are dramatic versions of favourite stories, superbly retold by Vivian French, perfect for reading aloud. Both of these titles are nursery stories that children will already know and love. The plays are written for four voices, with the parts clearly denoted by different colour bands. Each part can be read by a single voice or several voices. They include a wide range of reading abilities too, so everyone can join in!
