Jack’s

Mother

How

much

money

did

you

get

for

the

cow?

Jack

None

at

all,

but

I

got

something

that

is

much

better.

Watch

this!

Reader

Jack

gave

the

harp

to

the

bee,

and

then

he

gave

a

little

whistle.

The

bee

began

to

play

the

harp,

and

the

mouse

and

the

grasshopper

danced.

Jack

and

his

mother

could

not

help

dancing

and

laughing.

But

when

she

stopped,

Jack’s

mother

was

furious.

Jack’s

Mother

You

foolish

boy,

Jack.

We

still

have

no

food

and

no

money,

and

now

all

our

cows

are

gone!
