Jack and the Bean Soup is a fractured fairytale and elaborate fart joke. Jack trades the cow for magic beans that make a potent bean soup. Jack's farts send him skyward, and when the giant eats the soup, the results blast him around the heavens. Jack grabs the goose and lives happily ever after. The book is also a creation myth of sorts, explaining how evil came to the earth (Lucifer was fleeing the giant's flatulence) and the origin of thunder (the giant's thunderous gas).
