Summary

Jack's late daddy once made the best barbecue in West Texas, until a giant stole his recipe book. Jack is determined to find that greedy old giant and get those recipes back! With a little bit of strength, the help of an unlikely jukebox, and a whole lot of luck, Jack outwits the giant and opens his own barbecue shack. John Manders' hilarious gouache paintings, accented with colored pencils and highlights, bring Eric Kimmel's version of "Jack and the Beanstalk" to uproarious life.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Kimmel and Manders conspire to provide a fun riff on the Jack and the Beanstalk tale. This time out, instead of beans and a golden egg-laying goose, our Texan Jack goes after the giant to recover his father's barbecue recipe book and finds a companion in a talking jukebox. Kimmel keeps the tale moving along without strain and with the level of wit that children will delight in being able to share with an adult reading the book to them. Manders' colorful and cartoony paintings provide us with Jack (about age seven) in a 10-gallon hat, a jukebox that indeed has personality, and a giant who looks like Paul Bunyan on steroids. Large typeface invites early readers to try to work through the text on their own, but the story is made for reading aloud and sharing the giggles. An endnote describes barbecue, should any non-Texan be left wondering after listening to Jack, his mom, and the giant discuss its glories.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2010 Booklist"
