There are three stories in this classic book The Big Jump and Other Stories, each featuring a clever young boy named Ben and the good King. When one of the King’s pups takes a liking to Ben, the King agrees to give Ben the dog if Ben can jump to the top of the palace. It sounds impossible, but Ben is willing to try. Find out how the boy solves this and two other tricky problems, showing that there’s nothing that can’t be done if you put your mind to it.
