A beautiful morning of clear skies, the animals woke up in a sudden, scared with the noise that came from outside their homes. A big truck, driven by a zebra, announced, the background sound of a lively music, a good news: within a week, it's carnival!
Looking out the windows, doors and sidewalks, everyone asked:
- carnival? ... what is carnival?
Even the fish that looked out on the edge of the lake and the bears that came out of their burrows se, put on questioning faces.The zebra parked the truck in a large clearing in the forest and started distributing
invitations to everyone. But the animals were left looking distrustful, without even taking a step. The zebra, angry, protested the lack of interest of the animals of that forest:

The rabbit, very astute as always, began by saying that he was going to disguise himself as a turtle. It would make a large shell so that with its weight, it could walk more slowly. The tortoise, in turn, said that his costume would be a rabbit, that he would make some very, very big ears, to wear it at Carnival so he could run more and not get lost.
And so, every animal in the forest began to prepare for
. The bear has disguised himself as a lion because his dream was to be brave; the lion disguised himself as a bear so that he could be more sweet and loving, and so with everyone.The big day had arrived and all the animals got up early to give them time to disguise themselves, to put on makeup and everything else.
As promised, the zebra returned to the forest to collect the animals for Carnival. Each animal that left his house, surprised the others and made them laugh a lot.
