This is the story of the Little Sweeper who loved to clean the dirty streets of the town. The children of the town are jealous and tease the Little Sleeper. They steal his broom and hide it, giving him three days to find it. He searches everywhere. Deep in the woods, the horrid children break his broom into tiny sticks and burn it. Magically the broom rises from the embers, multiplies and helps the Little Sweeper teach the children how to laugh and play with him.
