Long ago there lived a man and his wife who had no children.
“I wish I had a little boy,” said the man.
“I’d like a son of my own even if he were not any larger than a little bean,” said the woman.
Time passed and a son was born to this worthy couple. He was no larger than a little bean and as the years went by he never grew any bigger. His name was Manoel Littlebean. He caused his mother endless trouble by constantly getting lost. Sometimes she’d nearly step on him. Other times he’d fall into the food and she would almost swallow him.
One day his mother couldn’t find him.
