Jack and the Bean Soup
Poor Jack. All he wanted to do was eat and get rich, like any other boy. But when he traded his cow for magic beans, to make the world’s best soup, it made him so gassy that even his mother couldn’t stay in the same house with him…
For the irreverent of all ages, from preschool through senility. A perfect gift for Father’s Day, anyone turning fifty, or people with crass taste. Good for reading aloud using different voices (Jack, his mother, the bean salesman, the giant).
Available from Amazon.
Mark Pendergrast was inspired to write Jack and the Bean Soup after consuming an inordinate amount of delicious lentil soup. His wife refused to sleep with him, so he stayed up and wrote this book.
