Synopsis

A Bean, a Stalk and a Boy Named Jack by William Joyce

You might think you know the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, but you might want to think again. In this fairy tale with a twist, it hasn't rained in days and the king has dictated that something must be done - his royal pinky is getting stinky! With a little magic from a wizard, young Jack, paired with his pea pod pal, will find a GIANT reason as to why there's no water left in the kingdom...and prove that size doesn't prevent anyone from doing something BIG. A fractured fairy tale from William Joyce and Moonbot Studios, the masterminds who brought you The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.

About the Author

William Joyce does a lot of stuff-films, apps, Olympic curling-but children's books are his true bailiwick (Billy's Booger; The Numberlys; The Man in the Moon; Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King; A Bean, A Stalk, and a Boy Named Jack; and the #1 New York Times bestselling The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, which is also his Academy Award-winning short film, to name a few). He lives with his family in Shreveport, Louisiana. Kenny Callicutt is a tallish artist. He honed his illustration skills at Virginia Commonwealth University and, since 2012, has been drawing and magicking at Moonbot Studios. A Bean, a Stalk, and a Boy Named Jack is his picture book debut.
