One day, in an antique shop he found an old magnifying glass. He liked it very much, and his parents bought it for him. He was so happy with his magnifying glass and as soon as he could, he used it to look at a little ant. The ant looked so big, but then a strange thing happened. When he took the magnifying glass away, the ant stayed the same size it had appeared through the glass. The boy kept experimenting, and he found that anything he looked at through the magnifying glass would get bigger, and stay that way. He realised how he could best use this special ability, and he ran home. At home he took all the candies and sweets, and he made them gigantic with his magnifying glass. Then he completely stuffed himself with them, until he could eat nothing more. However, the next morning he woke up totally swollen, a bit purple, and with a huge bellyache. When the doctor came to see him, he said it was the worst case of gluttony he had ever seen and would die if he ate for the next three days. Night and day, the little glutton suffered, and just one day before he could eat again he ate a loaf of bread and died the next morning.

    Every child “had contrived to exist upon the smallest possible portion of the weakest possible food, it did perversely happen in eight and a half cases out of ten, either that it sickened from want and cold, or fell into the fire from neglect, or got half-smothered by accident; in any one of which cases, the miserable little being was usually summoned into another world”.
