Contributor Bio(s): Liesl Shurtliff was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. Just like Jack, she was made to do lots of yard work, pulling weeds and growing green stuff she did not want to eat. These days, she dearly loves her local farmers’ market and always makes her kids eat the green stuff.
Before she became a writer, Liesl graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in music, dance, and theater. Her first three books, Rump, Jack and Red are all New York Times bestsellers and Rump was named to over two dozen state award lists and won an ILA Children’s Book Award. She lives in Chicago with her family, where she continues to spin fairy tales.

Dirt is raining from the sky, but it's no weird weather phenomenon. Giants have come and stolen half of Jack's town. When he gets to the giant world, Jack will have to brave everything from a jumbo toad to a gold-obsessed king to rescue his father. Shurtliff (Rump) once again uses her fertile imagination to add unforgettable new details to a well-loved classic.
