How to use "Jack-by-the-hedge" in context?
Jack-by-the- Hedge is considered an urban legend. It is a story of a young boy who is out playing by the hedge when a giant, hairy man comes out of the woods, grabs the boy and whiskes him away. The boy screams for help, but no one ever hears him. The story has been told time and time again, in different parts of the country, and usually ends with the same chilling outcome: the boy is never seen or heard from again. It is argued that the story is simply a cautionary tale about not going near the edge of aforest, but some believe that there is more to it than that.
