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 talk―to tell Jack to trade their mom's car for a box of mysterious seeds. It's the best mistake Jack has ever made.

In Mighty Jack, 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.

this book is byben hatke about them planting a gardan it goes wrong fighting the plants good book

it was funny and cool and some times sad


I'm really glad I got this book! I haven't read this book in a while. Mighty Jack is the first book in the series that Ben Hatke is making. It's about how Jack and his sister, Maddy, are trying to support there single mom, who is working hard to support her family, while they are secretly growing a garden with mysterious seeds they got from a strange man at a farmer's market. I would rate this 9/10!
