All night long a wolf howls at the moon and makes noise on his squeezebox, fueled by whatever barrel of potion is in the back of the cart. The rig is pulled by a mule and one night poor wolf is swindled out of his trusty steed by a witch who offers him some magic beans in exchange. Watered by tears of remorse, the beans grow into a stalk that reaches up into the clouds where the one-eyed giant lives with his magic cigar box banjo. The wolf goes up and more things go down.
Considering the great heights reached by the bean stalk, the story is printed on two sides of a scroll measuring over nine feet long. Told in fifty woodcuts hand printed in color from cherry blocks. The scroll has finished maple ends and is sealed in a food grade bean can with a gold foil label.
