The Latest From William Joyce: A Bean, a Stalk and a Boy Named Jack

When a king’s pinky grows stinky, it is up to a smallish boy and a smallish pea to come up with a GIANT plan to save the kingdom— a fractured fairy tale from William Joyce and Moonbot artist, Kenny Callicutt. It's the latest book from Moonbot Books, an imprint of Atheneum Books for Young Readers and Simon & Schuster.

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.

Kirkus says of the book: "Engrossing illustrations and quirky humor, hitched to Joyce's renown, will earn this its audience." Read the full review on their website.
