N: The next day, Jack wakes up early and runs to the garden.
J: Wow! You’re so tall! You’re a beanstalk! You seem to touch the clouds!
N: Jack climbs the beanstalk.
J: I’m at the top! What an amazing town in the sky! Wow, a giant’s house!
G: You thief! How dare you come to steal my treasure!

beanstalk falls, and Jack is safe!
