My guess is it may be "Turtle in Paradise", by Jennifer Holm.

The narrator is a young girl named Turtle, and she has a cousin named "Beans". Beans is the leader of the neighborhood children and they are the Florida Keys version of the little Rascals.

It's been years since I've read it (or its equally delightful sequel), and don't remember whether there was a character named String Bean, but the younger brother is the narrator, and the friends did have picturesque nicknames.

Hi,

A coworker is looking for a children's book (or series of books) featuring a very skinny character named 'String Bean.' The book or series also featured a group of young boys causing mischief. The narrator was the younger brother of one of these boys. Does this sound at all familiar to anyone? Thanks for your time.

Andrew Boucek
