The horse did not stir.

 

Dorothy thought he just wiggled one of his drooping ears, but that was all.

“Gid-dap!” called the boy, again.

The horse stood still.

“Perhaps,” said Dorothy, “if you untied him, he would go.”

The boy laughed cheerfully and jumped out.

 

“Guess I’m half asleep yet,” he said, untying the horse.

 

“But Jim knows his business all right–don’t you, Jim?” patting the long nose of the animal.

[Kid story]  Jack and the beanstalk 

 

 

Once upon a time there was a boy named Jack who lived with his poor widowed mother.

They had sold almost everything they owned to buy food.

when their last cow stopped giving milk, Jack’s mother sought him to town to sell it.

On the way to town Jack met a strange fellow who told him story as magic bean.

Where can I buy some of these magic beans for my mother, asked Jack.

I have the last five magic beans, and I will sell them to you, because you’re good boy.

This strange man smiled at Jack.

well, I have nothing but an old cow, and we need the money I would get by selling proper food.

The man replied, trust me my boy, these beans will bring you food and fortune, and your mother will be proud.

Jack hesitated, but finally traded the cow for the beans.

When Jack returned home, his mother was furious and threw the beans out of kitchen window crying.

Jack went to bed that night. Sad and hungry.

He woke the next morning to find a huge beanstalk growing in the garden.

The bean’s really awe magic! He cried.

Jack saw that stalk reaching to the cloud.

He remembered the story about the cloud containing gold, and started climbing the stalk to see what he could find.

He climbed and climbed. When he got to the top, he saw a huge castle and headed for it.

The door was so big that Jack could crawl underneath it.

Once he’s inside he saw a giant man eating his dinner.

When the giant was finished he called a servant to bring in his bag of gold coins.

While counting his money the giant became drowsy and fell asleep.

Jack crept up to the giant and stole his bag of gold.

He struggled down the beanstalk with his money.

And when he got to the bottom he called for his mother.

Jack’s mother was very happy because this money was the same money that the giant had stolen from Jack’s father many years ago, but she was also afraid she knew how dangerous the giant was.

And made Jack promise he would never go back, Well Jack did promise.

After a while the money began to run out. Jack began to wonder if he would find anything else from the castle.

Once again Jack decided he would go back up the beanstalk and back to the castle.

Once again he reached the castle and climbed under the castle door.

And once again he found a giant eating dinner at his table.

when he was finished this time however, the giant called for his magic hen.

Jack was amazed when he saw the hen lay an egg, a pure gold!

While the giant was watching the hen he again became drowsy and fell asleep.

Jack crept silent into the table and grabbed the hen.

When he returned home, his mother was very angry that Jack had gone back to the castle.

She grabbed Jack’s ax, intent to uncutting the beanstalk down.

Jack beg her not to and showed her how the hen could lay golden eggs.

Jack’s mother put the ax down and watched it with laugh as the hen laid one beautiful golden egg after another.

After a while Jack’s curiosity got the better of him.

And once again thought about what else he could find in the castle.

Once again Jack decided he would go back up the beanstalk and back to the castle.

Once again he reached the castle and climbed under the castle door.

And once again he found the giant eating dinner at his table.

And once again when he was finished this time, however, the giant called for his magic harp.

Jack watched as the harp began to play. Beautiful music all by itself.

The music was so beautiful that before long the lazy giant once again fell fast asleep.

Jack crept silently to the table when as soon as Jack picked up the harp, it began playing very loudly in his strange hands.

And the giant woke. Be five four palm Yelled the giant, and he chased after the boy and his harp.

Jack raced to the beanstalk and slipped down.

He could feel the stalk shake as the giant began climbing down.

Luckly his ax was nearby and he began chopping down the beanstalk.

The beanstalk shook and cracked under the weight of giant.

And Jack’s chopping. Finally the stalk snapped and the giant fell to earth. Never to be seen again.

Jack in his mother lived happily ever after.

The end.
