The next day, Jack looked out the window and saw a beanstalk. He climbed up the stalk. At the top he saw a huge house. He knocked on the door and the giant's wife opened the door. She gave him breakfast. Suddenly, Jack heard, "Fee Fi Fo Fum. I smell the blod of an Englishman!" "Hurry," said the giant's wife. "Hide. He likes to eat boys!"
The giant sat down and asked for his hen. The giant's hen laid golden eggs. When the giant went to sleep, Jack pick up the hen and climbed down the beanstalk.

Jack ran to the beanstalk and climbed down. The giant climbed down after him. "Mother, give me the axe" said Jack. Jack took the axe and chooped down the beanstalk. The giant fell into a big hole and dissapeared. Jack and his mother lived happily ever after with the hen and the harp.
