‘Calamity Jack’ by Shannon and Dean Hale

Book cover: Calamity Jack by Shannon and Dean Hale, illustrated by Nathan Hale
European fairy mythology meets frontier America in Calamity Jack, sequel to Rapunzel’s Revenge by Shannon and Dean Hale, illustrated by Nathan Hale.

This graphic novel picks up where Rapunzel’s Revenge left off. A misadventure with a beanstalk and the theft of a goose that lays golden eggs forced Jack to flee the city of Shyport. Now he and Rapunzel are returning home so he can put things right.

Readers who enjoyed the action, suspense and humor of Rapunzel’s Revenge will enjoy this story, which presents new challenges and introduces new allies.

Rapunzel’s Revenge was a 2011 nominee in the upper-elementary division, Oregon Reader’s Choice Awards. Readers can find both books in the Bellview Elementary School library and through Jackson County public libraries.
