Jack lives in the west and loves barbecue. Upon asking his mother why they never have any he finds out a giant stole his fathers barbecue recipes, causing his death and making his mother cry whenever there is barbecue. Jack vows to get the book and climbs a mountain up to the clouds to find the giants barbecue joint. A juke box instead of a harp helps Jack on his way, and fortunately for the giant the story doesn't end in death but in employment. A unique take on Jack and the Beanstalk that makes Jack smarter instead of foolish. The illustrations are nice but for me this is all about the story.
