Part 1: Poor Jack
Ein spannendes britisches Märchen mit Zauberbohnen und Riesen!
Jack and his mother live in a small house in the countryside. They are very poor.
"Jack, I'm hungry. Make me some tea and toast", says Jack's mother.
"Sorry, mother, but we don't have any tea or any toast." says Jack.
"You stupid boy! I'm hungry. Go to the market and sell something so we can buy some food." she says.
"Sorry mother, but we don't have anything to sell!" says Jack.
"Don't be stupid!?" says Jack's mother. "Sell the table. Sell the chairs! Sell anything! I'm hungry!"
Jack thinks for a moment and says: "We could sell Maggie, the cow. But I don't think it's a good idea. She gives good milk every day."
But Jack's mother doesn't listen.
"I'm hungry!" she says. "Take the cow to the market tomorrow and make sure you get £10 for her".
