The original title for this book was 'Oggie and the Beanstalk'. This title was deemed noncommercial and was changed to 'Yum Yum Book'. From the jacket: "I drew this story when I was nineteen years old and still a virgin..now I'm thirty years old and the book seems somewhat adolescent and immature to me. I gave the book as a gift to Dana when I first met her, as a token of my love. We got married shortly after. It has been hidden away all these years, along with some early sketchbooks of mine, and other sophomoric-romantic works done in the throes of horny passion. But now the time has come to review it to the world...I guess. My lawyer Albert Morse thinks it'll sell like hotcakes and make a lot of money. I dunno...."
