Once upon a time, a woman lived with her only son, Jack. They were very poor, and one day the woman had nothing to eat. All they had left was an old cow. So the woman sent Jack to sell her at the market.
“Make sure you can get a good price,” he told Jack.
On his way to the market, Jack met a strange little man.
“Where are you going with the cow?” The man asked.
“For the market,” Jack replied.
“I will buy it,” said the man, “I will give you these five magic beans for your cow.”
Jack had never seen magic beans before, so he quickly agreed and hoped that magic beans would make everything better.
And Jack ran home to tell his mother about the big deal he made, but his mother was not at all happy.
“Beans!”, He shouted! “How will our beans feed us?”
“She’s a magic bean mother,” Jack said.
“Magic beans, oh stupid boy,” said his mother, and threw the beans out the window.
If Jack woke up the next morning, he saw a many bean growing up to the sky. Without thinking, he picked up the bean while his mother was left to look at him.
After crossing the white clouds, Jack found himself in another country.
He arrived at a huge castle and decided to ring the bell. A giant woman came out of the gate.
“How did you get here, little boy?” He asked. “Come in before my husband arrives.”
He took Jack to the kitchen. The table or chair was like mountains to him.
“Have breakfast; you must be hungry,” the woman said.
Jack ate a plate full of food. Suddenly loud footsteps were heard.
“This is my husband,” the woman said. “Hide, because he will eat you.”
Jack quickly hid in the oven.
“Sniff, I smell human blood,” the giant said as he came into the kitchen.
“You imagine things!” said his wife. “There is no one in here. Your breakfast is on the table.”
The giant sat down to eat his huge meal and then asked for his golden hen. From his hiding place, Jack saw the hen lay an egg of pure gold each time the giant asked her to.
Soon the giant fell asleep, so Jack came out running, grabbed the hen, and reached for the beans before the giant woke up.
Jack’s mother was very relieved, and they made a good living selling the golden eggs. But the bean was still there, challenging Jack.
One day, Jack climbed on the bean again, sneaked into the castle, and hid in a closet.
“Sniff, I smell human blood,” the giant said as he tried to find Jack. But she could not find him, so she went to eat his dinner.
After eating, the giant went to get his magic harp. And the harp began to sing by itself the most beautiful music ever heard, and the giant fell asleep. While the giant was sleeping soundly, and Jack jumped out of the drawer or grabbed the harp, as he had never seen anything so beautiful before.
“Master, master,” cried the harp, “help me!”
The giant woke up and chased Jack. They both started down the bean, but Jack was lighter and faster than the giant and quickly reached the bottom.
“Bring me the ax, mother,” Jack said.
His mother quickly handed him the ax, and Jack began cutting the beans. Suddenly the bean began to fall, and that was the end of the giant. It was also the end of Jack’s adventures. Since then, he has lived happily with his mother, along with the hen with these golds and the harp that sang beautiful songs!
