Fee-fi-fo-fum, I smell a good book coming up! I’ve always loved the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. I love when a less-than-good choice (trading a cow for a handful of beans) has a good outcome (discovering the goose that lays golden eggs in the giants castle).
Really, Jack was just trying to be helpful. And, when I picture the story in my head, I picture Mickey Mouse as Jack. Mickey makes a great story even better.
