Jill And The Beanstalk

          Jill sold her cow for some “magical beans” and her mother was furious. What were they to do with the worthless things? The mother threw them out in anger. The mother called her dumb, idiotic and stupid, she felt three different words were needed instead of one. However the next day a massive bean stalk arose out of the ground and Jill didn't feel so dumb. It spiraled straight into the clouds.
         “I wonder where it leads,” a neighbor said.
         “I don't care,” she said as she noticed more beans on the stalk. “I've got the market cornered on a replacement for firewood!”
           And so the kingdom burned fast-growing magic beanstalk for the rest of its days. The magic bean merchant, a wizard in disguise, decided he needed to go elsewhere to find someone to kill the giant in the sky for him. His crystal ball told him to seek out a boy named Jack in another world as a possible candidate. He smiled and hoped the boy would serve the purpose.
