Mighty Jack
Mighty Jack | Ben Hatke
12 posts | 17 read | 5 to read
Jack might be the only kid in the world who's dreading summer. But he's got a good reason: summer is when his single mom takes a second job and leaves him at home to watch his autistic kid sister, Maddy. It's a lot of responsibility, and it's boring, too, because Maddy doesn't talk. Ever. But then, one day at the flea market, Maddy does talkto tell Jack to trade their mom's car for a box of mysterious seeds. It's the best mistake Jack has ever made. What starts as a normal little garden out back behind the house quickly grows up into a wild, magical jungle with tiny onion babies running amok, huge, pink pumpkins that bite, and, on one moonlit night that changes everything...a dragon.

[#GraphicNovelReview] Mighty Jack by Ben Hatke! I have wholeheartedly loved every single graphic novel I‘ve read by Ben Hatke. His stories are always so much fun and I love his art style. Mighty Jack is no exception and I cannot wait to continue the series! 📖🌱

Great reimagining of the 'Jack and the Beanstalk' story. Ben Hatke never lets me down. Can't wait for the second book!

I see Zita in Maddy. And I like that.

Another Ben Hatke series I will anxiously wait for the next installment. 💚

Ben Hatke is popular in the middle grades for his Zita the Spacegirl series (which I think everyone should read no matter how old you are!). I buy his books for my school librarian friends and they can't keep them on the shelf! Mighty Jack is no exception. There's magic, intrigue, and lots of action but like his other books, the heart of it is friends & family. He's one of my favorite authors. And meeting him was as fun as reading his books. 😆

Chose this graphic novel for school but hope to share it with my daughter first.

Look who showed up in Ben Hatke's latest. Just finished the first of his next series: Mighty Jack. Getting caught up on Hatke feels so good until that last page.

I'm so excited to get an early copy of Ben Hatke's new graphic novel. This twist on the Jack & the Beanstalk story sees some old friends meeting compelling new characters like Jack, Maddy, and Lily. And Hatke's amazing art is very much a fourth character In this delightful adventure.
