8. She was glad to see her goats.
9. "Oh, my golden goats! You are safe!"
10. "Should we give them back to you?"
11."To thank you for catching them, you may keep the goats.
12. But you should be careful. They might run away again.
13. If they come to me again, you must tell me which one is yours.
14. It will be hard."

17. "Wow! We can get rich! We can sell the goats golden fleece."
18. "But we must be careful with the goats."
19. "Yes! We must make sure to keep the goats here."

22. The youngest one branded his goat with tar under the chin.
23. Of course they didn't forget the fairy's warning.

25. "I will tie a rope around the neck of my goat."
26. "I will tie a rope around the neck of my goat, too.

C
29. As they expected, bundles of Golden Fleece sold at a high price.
30. Soon the three brothers became rich.

36. He loved leading his goat with him, petting and talking to him.
37. And when he whistled…
38. The goat followed him like a dog.
39. He rode on the goat's back and they took trips together.
40. One morning, the eldest brother found his goat gone.
41. "Oh, my! My goat ran away!"

43. "Oh, no! My goat ran away!"
44. The youngest brother found his goat gone, too.
45. "Oh, my goodness! My goat ran away!"
46. "My goat must be with the other goats."
47. "I will go and check the fairy’s."
D
48. "Where is my goat? I'm so worried."
49. So the three brothers went to the fairy.
50. The fairy's castle was in the woods on a hilltop.
51. "Ah, welcome. I thought you would be here soon.
52. Your goats came to me a while ago.
53. You're welcome to get your goat, if you can tell your goats apart from the others.
54. You can take them with you."
55. "Can we look at the stalls?"
56. "Of course!"
57. The three brothers went to the stalls to look at the goats.
58. Each goat was in a stall with walls and floors of marble.
59. And they went from stall to stall.
60. They looked at each golden goat in turn.
E
61. "Where is my goat?
62. No goat has a mark behind the left ear!"
63. "Where is my goat? No goat has a mark between the horns!"
64. "Where is my goat? No goat has a mark under the chin!"
65. "All the goats bathed in my crystal clear stream.
66. So all of the marks are washed away!"
67. "None of the goats recognized you. So I want all of you to leave my palace."
68. "Oh, my goat! My golden goat!
69. How can you forget me? We had such a nice time together."
70. He cried sadly. Then, he began to whistle.
71. Suddenly, one of the goats stepped out of his stall.
72. And ran into the youngest brother's arms.
73. "Oh, my goat! My golden goat!"
74. He cried in delight.

the magical beans and made his way back home.

the money they needed.

13The next morning when he and his mother awoke, they looked out their window to see the
tallest stalk that ever was!
14They looked up and up and the big stalk was growing into the sky!
15"I wonder where it goes? "Jack asked his mother. "I think I will climb up and see."

top.

problem." explained the fairy.
25"What's that? ”asked Jack.
26"There's an Ogre who took over the castle and he believes that it is his to keep.
27You will have to convince him that it belongs to you in order to have the great fortune you
seek."
28Jack thanked the fairy for her help and made his way to the castle.
29When he arrived the giant Ogre's wife greeted him.
30Jack kindly asked her if he might come in and see the great Ogre.
31She was pleased to let him in. impressed by his politeness.
32Jack spied the giant through a crack in the living room door, and what he saw amazed him!
33The Ogre had a hen that laid golden eggs, bags and bags of beautiful coins, and a harp that
made sweet songs when he told it to play.
34Jack knew that it would not be easy to persuade the giant Ogre to leave this great fortune, so
he had to think of a plan.
35Jack tiptoed into the large room and as he entered the Ogre said, "Fe Fi Fo Fum, who is it that
has come?"
36"It is I, Jack the king of this castle!"
37"King?" sniffed the giant Ogre."
38"Yes,"shouted Jack" And I am here to claim my great fortune!"
39"Well,"the Ogre exclaimed" you will not claim this fortune without a fight from me!"
40"I do not plan to fight from you Ogre "said Jack.
41"I plan to help you."
42"How can a small boy help a great giant like me?"
43"I will let you have all the food and fortune you desire without any work in retune as long as
you let me and my mother reclaim what is ours."
44"Life without work sounds like a dream!" said the Ogre. "It's a deal!"
45So, Jack went back down the beanstalk to find his mother.
46When he told her of the fortune he had found and the castle that was theirs, she cried for joy.
47For the rest of theirs days, Jack and his mother lived happily ever after in their castle in the sky
with the greatest fortune of all!
