Poor Jack is a re-working of a Romany story included in Alan Garner's collection of British Fairy Tales.
Jack and his mother live together in their cottage but it's time for him to leave. He has ideas buzzing in his head about a castle of grey and a lady dressed in green.
Jack finds it difficult to leave his mother. He keeps coming back to tell her about his adventures on the road - the fierce Farmer's-Wife, the forbidding old lady who tells him about the castle.
When he does eventually reach the castle, Jack finds a monstrous Giant and a little hairy man who set him to work at some seemingly impossible tasks. But a mysterious voice helps him through and finally Jack restores the castle of grey to its former golden glory. And finds the Lady in Green
