Jack Plank enjoys being a pirate, 

but plundering is not what it used to be, 

and Jack is let go. 

The good-hearted fellow takes a room 

in a boarding house run by Mrs. DelFresno, 

a widow with an 11-year-old daughter, Nina. 

Each evening at the communal dinner table, 

one of the diners suggests 

a possible occupation to Jack, 

who replies that he and Nina discussed that very idea 

earlier in the day 

as they walked about the Jamaican port town. 

However, he has ruled out that particular job, 

based on an experience 

that he proceeds to relate. 

The chapter "Not a Farmer" sets up the framework. 

Jack explains that he cannot work 

in the sugarcane fields, 

because it would involve crossing a bridge, 

which he never does for fear of meeting a troll. 

His mother's cousin's nephew once encountered a troll. 

Jack then obliges his fellow boarders 

by telling the tale in full
