The Jellybean Tree is a picture book text that tells the story of Grandpa Grundy and his obsession with jellybeans.


Grandpa Grundy loved jellybeans. Every time he plopped one in his mouth, he patted his wiggly, jiggly tummy and said, “Yum! Yum, yum, yummy!” 


One night, only one jellybean was left in the jellybean jar. “Well, pop my buttons,” 

said Grandpa Grundy. “One jellybean! I can’t eat the very last jellybean.” Then Grandpa Grundy had a great idea ...


Another gorgeously illustrated book where Jill Eggleton takes you on a ride with a quirky character who wants to grow his own jellybean tree. But how do you grow a jellybean tree?
