Here is my Story Maker Challenge. Any suggestions/improvements welcome. Thanks!

var person = prompt("Welcome to The Story Maker.  Please answer each question. First, name a person you know:");
var verb = prompt("Now enter a verb.");
var partOfBody = prompt("Finally enter a part of the body.");
var story = "Jack and " + person + " went up the hill ";
alert("Thanks for playing!  Now read your story.");
story += "to " + verb + " a pail of water.  ";
story += "Jack fell down and broke his " + partOfBody + " and " + person; 
story += " came tumbling after.";
