Publisher's Summary

A poor woman lives far from London in a cottage with her "indolent, careless, and extravagant" son, Jack. The two have little money and are forced to sell their last possession, a cow. Jack leads the animal along the road and meets an old man who trades some magic beans for the cow. Jack’s mother is furious when she discovers he has come home with no money, and tosses the beans away. The next morning, Jack finds a beanstalk has grown to the clouds and climbs it… finally reaching a castle, high above the sky!

Dreadful. Do NOT buy it.

Would you try another book from Benjamin Tabart and Jerry Robbins and/or J. T. Turner and The Colonial Radio Players ?

No, I would not.

Would you ever listen to anything by Benjamin Tabart and Jerry Robbins again?

No, I would not.

Would you be willing to try another one of J. T. Turner and The Colonial Radio Players ’s performances?

No, I would not.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Jack and the Beanstalk?

All of it, really.

Any additional comments?

This is an ***adaption*** of the original story. And the acting is sub-par, at best. If I could rate this more negatively, I would.
