The Monkey's Paw

There are many traditional stories in which characters are granted three wishes. What theme do many of them share? Can you tell what makes The Monkey's Paw different from others?

Many of these stories revolve around the desire for money, that being the first thing most people think of when given a wish or asked what they'd wish for. The difference between this story and most of the others is the ending..... three wishes generally result in a happy ending. The Monkey's Paw takes an interesting spin with an ending that's anything but happy..... ever.
