Jack and the Beanstalk – Miles Kelly

Fe Fi Fo Fum, we’ve got a great free storybook for dads and mums! Delve into the world of Jack and the Beanstalk with our free download. This classic fairy tale is filled with adventure, magic and a very hungry giant. 

This is the story of how Jack did a silly thing, but all was well in the end. Jack and his mother were very poor, and one day Jack’s mother told him to take their only cow to market, and sell her for as much money as he could possibly get. On the way to market, Jack met a funny little man who offered him five magic beans in exchange for the cow. 

Jack should have realized that this was rather odd, but he took the beans, handed over the cow and ran home. Jack’s mother was so furious she flung the beans out of the window and sent Jack straight to bed. The next morning, Jack wandered outside to find his mother staring in amazement at an enormous beanstalk. It reached right up into the clouds. “I told you they were magic beans,” said Jack, and he began to climb. 

Jack climbed and climbed. At the top of the beanstalk was a huge castle. Jack knocked on the door, and a gigantic woman opened it. “My husband eats boys for breakfast,” she said. Before Jack could reply, the ground started to shake, so she hid Jack in a cupboard.
