A doll-maker makes a little wooden boy. It has two left feet so it cannot dance.

This proves to be a trouble.

“I cannot accept this incapacity,” says the wooden boy angrily. He stomps off. He slams the door of the doll-maker’s shop and he kicks it with his left foot.

I mean, you know. With his left left foot.

Then he turns and he runs away!

“I’ll go to Hans,” says he.

Hans, who first made sense of things. Hans, who built the world from chaos. Hans the smith; Hans the farmer; Hans the dwarf.

But first, he travels the world.
