It was celebrated every year during the departure of the big full moon. The seagulls were in charge of taking all the animals to the invitation. The meeting place for the big party was Lake Titicaca. It was a beautiful lake that loved to receive the visit of all the animals. That way he listened to all the conversations and kept up to date. That's why he was the one who organized the big party every year.
And the animals, happy, prepared and arranged the best they could . They took out their best clothes, feathered and perfumed the skin ...The best moment was the triumphal entry of each of the animals. Everyone turned to see how he was dressed. And that, Tatú, I knew it. It was not the first time I went to that party, but it was the most important one,
since I had just been awarded an honorary title, quería and I wanted that year to be truly amazing. So, just after receiving the invitation from the seagulls, he began to weave a new mantle, to look really beautiful. And Tatu wove and knitted without stopping. It was a cloak that took a lot of work, because I wanted it to be like that cobweb that remains between the branches of the trees, very thin. En And in the middle of his work, the fox appeared, who loved to make other animals angry
. He entered and when he saw Tatú weaving, he said:
- But Tatú, what are you doing? - Do not distract me, fox- said the animal patient- I have a lot of work and I want to finish this cape for the party in time. ¿- How? - said the fox then- What do you want to wear that cape for the party tonight? If you still have a lot of work left!Tatu was startled to hear that: ¿- Tonight you say, fox? ... Is the party tonight?
- Yes, tonight. It will not give you time. You'll see, "said the fox smiling. He loved causing harm to others.
He left with a kind of pleasure in leaving Tatú feeling sorry.
Tatú cried. How was it possible that time had passed at that speed? And yet, instead of giving up,
he decided to look for a quick solution
: if he wove with very thick threads, he would finish on time. And although it was not what he wanted, he decided to knit what he lacked with thicker children, and effectively, he finished on time. At night, he left with his beautiful woven cloak to two different children and that's when he realized that the fox had deceived him: the moon was not full! There were still a few days left!
However, Tatú contemplated how beautiful her cape had been and smiled: it was not what he had thought to do, and yet, it had been really beautiful.
He thought that deep down, the fox had done him a favor. And so it was: on the day of the party, Tatú dazzled with her beautiful two-strand cape. It was original and very special. Everyone applauded him and the fox bowed his head. Reading comprehension questions about this legend for your childThe legend of Tatú and the festive cape
