    Bartholomew is a pretty long name for a short six-year-old boy, and so he's called Beansie. He may be 'no bigger than a cake of soap after a week's wash,' but Beansie has to do man-size work because he lives on an Indiana homestead in the 1820s. He's happy at home with Pap, Ma, and his nine-year-old sister, Louisa. Well, not always happy with Louisa who has red hair and a temper to match. She loves to tease her brother and seems to take special joy in clunking on the downstairs ceiling with a broom to awaken him in the morning. One of Beansie's chores is to fetch Bess, the family cow, so they'll have milk for breakfast. Beansie wasn't too fond of doing that as he had to go into the woods to find Bess, as he had no idea what else might be hiding there - maybe even Indians! But even more fearful to Beansie than the mysteries of the woods was Pap's announcement that he and Louisa would soon be starting to school. He didn't want to be stuck inside some log cabin all day. Further, how in the world could he and his sister ever find their way home from a school that was a mile away? As if all of that weren't enough to make Beansie's knees knock there was also the thought of being in close proximity to Oliver Sweeny, known as the strongest boy for miles around. Young readers will surely relate to Beansie's reservations about the first day of school, and cheer him on as he meets the challenge head on (in more ways than one).
