When the residents of Hidden Forest wake up and open their morning papers, they are in for a surprise.

An enormous beanstalk has mysteriously sprouted outside of Jack Blake's house, and Jack is nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Pinocchio and Half-Chicken have set out on adventures of their own, and Tortoise and Hare are off to the races. Will they all find their happy endings? Hidden Forest News has got the scoops.

Written and laid out in newspaper format, this installment in the enchanting Hidden Forest series has received a new twist from Alma Flor Ada and Leslie Tryon. All of your favorite fairy-tale characters from Dear Peter Rabbit; Yours Truly, Goldilocks; and With Love, Little Red Hen are back, but this time they are hitting the presses and making headlines!

Abandoning the epistolary style of their first three books about the denizens of the Hidden Forest (Dear Peter Rabbit), Ada and Tryon use a newspaper format to tell several stories at once.

I think this would be fine to read to children but i would never read the entire book to them in one sitting unless they were older.
