Having extra toes can be a problem.  Sixto had six toes on each foot.  It made buying shoes a real problem.  And he tripped a lot when he ran.  But he could surely kick a ball.  And he was always chosen first for kickball.  The town Sixto lived in was known for it's delicious grape juice.  And how do you think they made the grape juice?  They put the grapes into a barrel and then someone got into the barrel and stomped them.  And with Sixto's extra toes, he was able to stomp the grapes much faster than the others.  What will become of sweet little Sixto?  Will he be forced to stomp grapes forever?
