O Saci-Pererê

Who is Saci?

Saci is an impish boy with a missing leg.  He's from the folk stories of Brazil, a story brought to Brazil from African slaves.  According to his stories (see the writings of Monteiro Lobato (in Portuguese).  Giant thank-you to Tracy who introduced Saci at the October monthly meeting and translated some of Lobato's stories about Saci :)
