Once upon a time there was a poor mother who
lived alone with her son, Jack. All they had
in the world was an old cow to give them milk.
One day the cow stopped giving milk so the woman
had to sell her.
She told Jack to take
the cow to market and to get as much money as
he could for her.
On his way to market Jack
met a man who wanted to buy the cow. He offered
Jack five beans for the cow.Jack knew that his
mother would be very angry if he sold the cow
"They are very special beans" said the man.
"They are MAGIC ! - they will bring you good
luck!" Jack thought that he and his mother needed
some good luck, so he gave the cow to the man
in return for the magic beans.
