Jack and the Beanstalk is an English fairy tale. The origin is unknown.
A boy named Jack is sent to market by his mother to sell the cow. As Jack was on his way, he met a stranger who offered to trade five magic beans for the cow. Jack accepted and returned home with the beans. His mother was angry that he had not obeyed her instructions. She threw the beans out of the window. As Jack slept, the beans germinated and a gigantic beanstalk grew in their place by morning. When he woke, Jack decided to climb it. He arrived in a land high up in the clouds that was home to a giant. He broke into the giant’s castle. The Giant sensed him but Jack escaped with a bag of gold coins. He visited again and stole a hen which laid golden eggs. When Jack climbed the beanstalk a third time, he stole a magical harp that played by itself. The harp called the Giant for help. The Giant chased Jack down the beanstalk but Jack chopped the beanstalk down and the giant fell to the ground. That was the end of the Giant and the beanstalk.
