Book Review #864
Calamity Jack by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale, illustrated by Nathan Hale
Rating: three stars (out of four)

This was a delightful read! I thoroughly enjoyed how the authors carefully wove a plot with well-known characters and twisted them to create a unique story. I also loved how they poked fun at old fairy tales. The illustrations were fun and suited the book perfectly. I really liked the interaction between the characters and watching Jack grow up was another bonus. I liked having Jack take the center stage for this story after it revolving around Rapunzel for the last book. I would recommend.
