The story commences with the introduction of four characters who live in a small village in a far-off kingdom at the edge of the woods and all of them have very important wishes. The Narrator first introduces a fair maiden called Cinderella, who really wants to go to the King’s festival but is unable to go because her evil Stepmother and Stepsisters called Florinda and Lucinda laugh and joke at even the idea of her going to a ball. The Narrator then introduces a young boy called Jack who wishes his beloved cow, which is also his best friend, would give him some milk. Milky White is no longer giving milk which leads Jack’s Mother to force him to sell the cow as they need money to buy food to survive. The narrator then introduces the Baker and the Baker’s Wife who wish to have a child, as they desire to start a family. The Narrator then introduces a little girl who is very hungry and always wears a red cape and is called ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. She goes into the Bakery and wishes for bread, pastries and pies. The Baker and his Wife give her even more treats than she asked for, before embarking on her journey to visit her ill Grandmother. Cinderella calls on the help from birds in the sky to help her clear up the lentils that her horrible Stepmother thrown on the floor as one of her chores promising she could then go to the festival. The Witch informs the Baker and his wife that it was in fact the Baker’s Father who stole the magic beans from her garden. This was when the Baker’s Mother was pregnant with his long-lost sister Rapunzel. The Witch then unveils that she has cast a spell upon the Baker’s family to always be barren as the magic beans kept the Witch looking like her beautiful past self. The Witch offered to reverse the curse if they brought her within 3 days a white cow, a red cape, some yellow hair and a slipper made of pure gold. Cinderella then makes her way into the woods. Jack also sets off for the woods to try to sell his cow and so does the Baker with six beans in his pocket that he found in his Father’s jacket.
Cinderella goes to see her Mother’s grave in the woods and repeats her wish and magically she is dressed in a ball gown ready to go to the festival. Little Red Riding hood is approached by the Wolf who takes her on a detour through the woods. The Baker sees Jack with Milky White and he buys the cow off of him for 5 beans. Rapunzel’s Prince spies on Rapunzel in her tower as she hears her sing a beautiful song and he plans to pursue her. The Baker rescues both Little Red Riding Hood and Little Red Riding Hood’s Grandmother as they had been swallowed by the Wolf. She gives him her red cape as a thank you gift. Jack’s Mother finds out that he sold the cow for some beans and she angrily throws them on the ground which then grow into a giant beanstalk. Cinderella quicky escapes the ball after the prince has pursued her as she is scared that he will not want to be with her if he finds out who she really is. The Baker’s Wife spots Cinderella in the woods so she tries to steal a golden slipper from her and ends up losing the cow. Jack gives the Baker the gold that he collected from the top of the beanstalk in order to buy back his cow. Then a mysterious man appears from nowhere and steals the gold from the Baker and the Baker’s Wife cuts off a piece of Rapunzel’s golden hair. The man then gives Milky White back to the Baker but then the cow shortly dies. The Witch cuts all of Rapunzel’s hair off and banishes her after she finds out she has been visited by a prince. Cinderella has mixed emotions about being pursued by a prince so she does not know whether to stay at the festival or leave. Her slippers are stuck in goo on the steps of the palace so she leaves the prince a golden slipper behind as a clue. She then swiftly leaves the palace once again and trades shoes with the Baker’s Wife in the woods. Jack kills the giant at the top of the beanstalk and the beanstalk falls to the ground. The Baker then finds another cow so now the Baker and his Wife have all 4 items so the Witch appears but discovers that new cow is of no use. The Witch brings Milky White back to life and instructs the Baker to feed the 4 items to the cow to produce to potion. The cow fails to produce milk as the Witch has touched Rapunzel’s hair so she instructs the Baker to feed the cow some corn silk which the Mysterious Man offers to give the Baker. Milky White then produces milk and the Witch informs the Baker that the Mysterious man who has been helping him is in fact his Father. The Witch drinks the potion and she returns back to her younger self. The Baker’s Father passes away and the curse has been lifted. Jack is now reunited with Milky White and they carry on their friendship now laden without gold and Cinderella’s prince gets married to Cinderella. Rapunzel’s Prince marries Rapunzel and the Witch’s powers are gone so she can’t control Rapunzel anymore.
