I’m

off

to

make

my

fortune,”

said

Jack.

He

put

the

harp

in

his

bag,

and

tied

the

bee,

the

mouse

and

the

grasshopper

together

with

string.

Away

he

went

to

the

King’s

castle.

When

he

got

there,

Jack

saw

some

men

being

led

past

in

chains.

They

annoyed

the

King,”

explained

a

soldier.

They

all

tried

to

make

the

Princess

laugh,

but

they

could

not.”

“I

can

make

her

laugh,”

said

Jack.

“You

are

a

foolish

man,”

said

the

soldier.

You’ll

be

put

in

chains

just

like

the

others.”
