Who is the author of "Jack and the Beanstalk"?

Answer

Benjamin Tabart is claimed to have written the first version of "Jack and the Beanstalk" in 1807. Prior to written publication, this moral tale was an oral narrative.

There is not definite proof that Benjamin Tabart's version was the first in print, yet this is the version that became the standard tale. Subtle changes have been made to the original story, but the main premise is intact. Tabart went on to retell many other native British children's fables until he died in 1833. Other authors who have written versions of "Jack and the Beanstalk" are Steven Kellogg, Roald Dahl, James Still and dozens of other fairytale authors.
