Jack and the Beanstalk Retold

Fee, Fie, Foe, Fum...
A plant inspires a tale retold...
Jack: Unbelievable. It appeared overnight. Gotta be a story in this.
Kris: The beanstalk? Jack arrived at work by bicycle one hot summer morning.
Jack: A huge plant had appeared overnight. Grew out of the stormwater grate.
Kris: Jack looked up into the leaves and saw a shining mango. He hadn’t brought any lunch so he thought, “That’ll be my lunch.”
Jack: Up he climbed, up and up.
Kris: But he didn’t seem to be getting any closer. Suddenly, he realised something. The beanstalk was growing as fast as he was climbing.
Jack: And carrying him up with it. The ground was now far away.
Kris: And the shining mango was just as far off.
Choose an ending to complete the story as a sort of “Choose your own Adventure”. Remember those?
(a) Jack woke up from the dream.
(b) The shining mango fell, Jack caught it and climbed safely down.
(c) A giant appeared and ate Jack for his lunch.
(d) It was a genetically modified beanstalk which grew mangos.
