THE STORY IS KIND OF SHORTER THAN THE ORIGINAL STORY BUT THAT STILL FINE. IF I CAN, I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A MAGIC SOIL FOR ALL OF MY LOVELY PLANTS. IF I HAVE THAT MAGIC SOIL, THE MAGIC SOIL WILL HELP MY PLANTS TO GROW FASTER AND STRONGER. AND IT WILL ALSO HELP MY LANT TO NEVER DIE YOUNG.

Dear HorridPlastic10,

We've checked the video and it seems to work OK. Try using a different browser or check the connection to your internet. Can you ask an adult to help you?

I have a magic crown. When I put it on my head I have a moustache like a grown-up man. Moreover, I have a magic glass. It doesn't spill water.

In fact, if the beans the man exchanged with Jack were not magic beans, I thought Jack was a foolish boy. Because no one goes to exchange a cow for a few beans. Besides, I think Jack is a thief because he entered the giant's castle without his permission, then Jack also steals the giant's hen and harp. *This is just my opinion* But the story was very good. I like it (o_O)_3

I'd like to have the magic hen that lays golden eggs. Because I can by the magic harp with the golden eggs. And also I like birds, so my choise is the magic hen.
