Dear student
Please post your questions on individual threads and we will answer them as soon as possible. However, here are the answers to a few of your questions.

1. Jack wants to convey through the story that changing ourselves for the benefit of others isn't always the right solution. He also wants to show that we don't always end up getting what we want. Sometimes, we must compromise with what we get or what we have. 

3. Jack asserts his authority by saying that he will not change the story for Jo, no matter how much she throws a tantrum. He says that if she persists, he will no longer tell her any stories. After he comes down and still hears her walking around, he threatens to come back up and spank her. 

4. The tiger King met his end after being hurt by a splinter from a wooden tiger. This is ironical because, even though all the tigers were dead, the wooden tiger killed him, symbolically confirming what the astrologers had told him, that he would meet his end through the 100th tiger.
