Mickey and the Beanstalk

Like always Disney has to come in and do fairy tales up there way but they can be fun to read even if they aren't a must read. :) Mickey is always a fun character. I have definitely heard much livelier versions of this.

I don't normally recommend movies but my husband and I found an interesting twist on this one last year called: Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story
It tells both side to the story in a way I had never thought of and from what I remember it was clean. I can't remember the rating and now looking online I find 2, Not Rated and PG. It is a little dark for small children and I know this is a book blog for kid's books but it gave me and my husband a new perspective on the story which we may be able to tell to our kids in a lighter fashion.
