Synopsis

Here is the story of Jack and his famous house as only award-winning artist Jeanette Winter could present it. The words of the classic nursery rhyme appear in a charming rebus puzzle, with added verses that place Jack's house on a hilltop. Witty paintings bursting with color and action show the satisfying havoc wreaked by the series of animal and human visitors who come up the hill. Young readers will delight in reciting the words of this cumulative rhyme that has entertained children for centuries. And with each turn of the page, they'll revel in the drama that unfolds in the lively and beautifully crafted art.

Winter's (My Name Is Georgia) cheerful, acrylic pictures have a folk-art quality well suited to this familiar, cumulative tale, which she supplements with several original verses (an early one places Jack's house on top of a hill and a final verse informs that ""he lives there still"").
