Princess Sophie is fed up. She's EXHAUSTED and it's all because that grumpy old giant can't sleep - his stomps and stamps keep everyone awake ALL night. But Princess Sophie is a resourceful sort of girl and, as she reads her favourite book of fairy tales, she wonders if she might just have the answer. She bravely climbs the beanstalk and takes a tasty bowl of porridge, a teddy to cuddle and even a cosy blanket - all to help the giant sleep. But, oh dear, nothing works until finally Sophie hits upon the perfect thing - the giant needs a bedtime story! Phew! Everyone lives (and sleeps) happily ever after but when Sophie then teaches the giant how to read himself, it is the most perfect ending of all.

K-Gr 3—Princess Sophie hasn't gotten any sleep lately, and it's all because of a restless giant stomping in his castle at the top of a magical bean stalk planted at the back of Sophie's yard. When she asks her parents why giants are so mean and bad, Sophie's dad hands her a book of fairy tales. With the help of some trusty classic tales, Sophie dreams up ideas to help get her giant friend to sleep. Readers follow the fearless heroine as she scales the bean stalk to deliver a small pot of porridge in hopes of getting the giant to bed. When her plan fails, Sophie simply devises another and another. Eventually, she learns that all the giant really needs is a proper bedtime story and perhaps a good teacher, too. Like Sophie, Hart and Warburton rely on classic fairy tales to pull off this charming feat of a story. This is a fabulous fractured fairy tale with as many twists and turns as the stunningly illustrated bean stalk that spreads throughout the pages. Hart's well-crafted rhyming text is lengthy and winding but full of enchanting surprises. Large illustrations mixed with intricate and carefully imagined details are sure to keep the interest of princesses, princes, kings, and queens of all ages. VERDICT A fun read-aloud for fairy tale-themed storytimes or bedtime reading.—Brianne Colombo, Pequannock Township Public Library, NJ
