The version of Jack and the Beanstalk I used as a format is my family's favourite. It's a picture boo by Sally Grindley and Peter Utton, called 'Shhh!' Find it on Amazon here.
My sentence doesn't quite follow the format, but I think it is used effectively.

 Hidden acrostic
Sentence type
 Imagine x 3
 Jack and the beanstalk

 Hidden acrostic
Focus word has one letter in each line but not first or last – so try 2nd letter, or 1st letter of second line
 Imagine x 3
Adds interest, builds atmosphere. Describe 3 parts of something, separated by commas. Use a colon after the third one and finish with a linked clause.
Imagine a place where the sun always shines, where wars never happen, where no-one ever dies: in the Andromeda 5 system there is such a planet.

Lazy Jack was supposed to sell his cow but came home with 5 beans instead. He much preferred sitting in the sunlight to trudging the long way to market.

Shhh! Jack, you are about to enter a
Giant’s Abominable castle.
Hey – Come inside! Imagine
The Kitchen (where he’ll cook you if he finds you!); 

The Attic (where I hope he is asleep);
The Nooks and crannies (which you’ll need to hide in if you wake him).
Shh! Don’t make a sound.

Look – There’s the giant’s pet mouse.
If He wakes, he’ll run and tell the Giant.
His Ears are twitching! And there’s the giant’s cat.

Shhh! Be quiet. Let’s go past very quickly.
Whoops! Eeek! Jack you made the floorboard squeak! Is the
Cat Awake?
He’s Not?
Good! Shhh!
Look! There’s the giant.
Jack! Almost there. I dare you to say,
‘Boo!’ Listen to that snore! Oh, it's stopped...

Quicky Koalas, he’s coming! Run!
