About "Jack and the Beanstalk": Sent to the market to sell his old cow, Jack returns home with nothing more than a handful of beans. His mother is not impressed! Jack doesn't know where to turn, until the beans magically grow into a beanstalk, leading him up into the clouds. This hilarious retelling of the tallest of tales is filled with colorful scenery, whimsical puppetry, and several silly barnyard animals. Don't miss this giant-sized adventure!
