Le dernier jour d’automne

The Last Day of Autumn | Der letzte Tag im Herbst
The autumn leaves are splendid – yellow, red and brown – but winter’s on its way. The forest animals are making last preparations for an unusual race. Wintriness is announced by the chinking of ice and the start signal sounds for hare, fox, beaver, bear and co. Riding on delicately drawn, self-made vehicles, they help each other pedal towards the finish line, and their cosy winter-shelters.
