Hey there! Welcome to "Fairy Tale and Folktale Fridays," a new feature on my blog where I discuss about some fairy tales and folktales I have read throughout the years. This feature was inspired by Chrissi Reads' "Fairy Tale Friday" meme and I was so inspired by those posts that I wanted to do a feature that details my love for fairy tales and folktales!
Jack and the Beanstalk
Type: Fairy Tale
Country of Origin: England
Main Character Hero or Heroine: Hero
1. How do you feel about Jack stealing the giant's items?
I will admit that I was a bit taken aback about the whole situation, even if the giant is portrayed as being the villain in this story. It just doesn't seem right either way about Jack stealing the giant's possessions, although there are some versions of this story where the giant actually stole Jack's possessions a long time ago, which makes more sense for Jack to take them back.
2. What other way could Jack and his mother make money to provide for themselves?
Either Jack or his mother could find a job that could suit their abilities and they could make some money from there.
