It would have been a normal, boring summer….had Jack not sold his mother’s car for a box of mysterious seeds. Ben Hatke’s Mighty Jack takes Jack and the Beanstalk’s folk-tale charm and adds a dash of modern fantasy. Follow Jack, his sister Maddy, and the spunky neighbor Lilly as they wrangle with the magical garden behind Jack’s house and travel to the dangerous world beyond the vines and stalks.
Ben Hatke is the author and illustrator of the New York Times–bestselling Zita the Spacegirl trilogy, the picture books Julia's House for Lost Creatures and Nobody Likes a Goblin, and the graphic novels Little Robot and Mighty Jack. He lives and works in the Shenandoah Valley with his wife and their boisterous pack of daughters.
