After that, Jack and his mother lived a very comfortable life. The golden hen made a Jack a millionaire. The magic harp made him famous. Jack married a rich and famous woman and together they had ten children.

But Jack was never truly happy.

Every time the wind blew, Jack heard the giant calling for his wife. And every time it rained, he felt the giant-wife's tears falling on him.

Jack felt sad and guilty.

Old Jack in his fancy house, looking sad

One day, when Jack was very old, he decided that he didn't want to be sad any more. He opened a box on his mantelpiece and pulled out one last shrivelled magic bean.

If he could find the giant, he could grow another beanstalk. Then the giant could back up to his castle in the clouds. If he could find the giant, he could also apologize for being so greedy.

Jack packed his bag and walked into the Misty Mountains.

Did Jack find the giant? Did he grow a new beanstalk with the last magic bean? Nobody knows.

But people say, if you listen closely during a thunderstorm, you can hear the rumbling sound of two giants dancing together in the clouds.
