Kuto was born in the small village of Mali, in the heart of Africa. Though his life started out like that of any other child in his tribe, it soon became clear that Kuto was different. From a very young age, he showed an uncanny knack for finding things – whether it be lost animals or secret hiding places. His friends and family began to call him ‘the littlefinder’.
As he grew older, Kuto’s gift continued to amaze those around him. He could find anything – no matter how well hidden it was. It seemed as though there was nothing that could escape his searching eyes and sharp mind.
One day, when Kuto was out exploring the jungle near his village, he came across a strange plant with bright red berries. He had never seen anything like it before and decided to take some back to show his friends and family. But when he arrived home, nobody could identify the plant or its berries.
Kuto didn’t give up easily though; he spent days scouring books and talking to elders in order to try and find out more about this mysterious fruit. Finally, after much persistence, he discovered that the plant was called ‘miracle berry’ and that its berries had special properties: they made sour foods taste sweet!
Kuto couldn’t believe it – all this time he had been eating sour fruits without even knowing they could taste so good! He immediately went back into the jungle to pick more berries so that everyone in his village could experience this amazing discovery for themselves…
