Description

Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum'un,
I smell the blood of an Englishwoman.
Be she alive or be she dead,
I'll grind her bones to make my bread.

Mary Pope Osborne's funny, magical retelling of the favorite tale and Giselle Potter's enchanting illustrations feature a new and inspiring heroine named Kate for today's audience. Readers will cheer on this resourceful, gutsy girl as she outsmarts the famously greedy giant.
