Calamity Jack

Calamity Jack (Rapunzel's Revenge, #2)
by Shannon Hale, Nathan Hale, and Dean Hale

144 pages
Published January 5, 2010

Jack likes to think of himself as a criminal mastermind…with an unfortunate amount of bad luck. A schemer, plotter, planner, trickster, swindler...maybe even thief? One fine day Jack picks a target a little more giant than the usual, and one little bean turns into a great big building-destroying beanstalk.  With help from Rapunzel (and her trusty braids), a pixie from Jack’s past, and a man with inventions from the future, they just might out-swindle the evil giants and put his beloved city back in the hands of good people ....while catapulting themselves and readers into another fantastical adventure.

While this was fun and had me laughing, it wasn't quite on par with the first book.

But that doesn't really matter. It was still a blast to read!

5/5 stars
