Oxford University Press have just published the traditional folk tale, Oh, Jack!, illustrated by Teresa Murfin.

Jack is great at finding jobs but he’s also terrible at holding any of them down. His poor mother is driven to distraction after Jack loses job, after job, after job. However, all is not lost. Jack’s antics eventually win him the hand of a fair maiden who he made laugh and they lived happily ever after.

Oh, Jack! is one of 40 traditional tales taken from around the world which form part of the Oxford Reading Tree: Traditional Tales series.

Here is some of Teresa’s marvellous artwork from the book.
