A tiger without stripes? Can the animal that terrifies the other inhabitants of the jungle be a real tiger at all? To stop being laughed at the little tiger goes in search of his stripes. He discovers them as shadows on his fur, paints them on with mud, but nothing lasts. How else can he get his stripes?

The chains are oiled, tyre pressure checked and helmets fastened. And here’s the start signal for the last bicycle race of autumn for the hedgehog, the turtle and the rabbit family. The course takes the forest-dwellers over hill and dale, over mountains and through valleys. Will they all make it to the finishing line before the icy wind of winter catches up with them? They will have to pedal hard!

Thanks to his long neck, Diplodocus can reach even the highest leaves. He’s chewing away peacefully – after all, nobody disturbs him up there! It’s too bad, though, that a few naughty little dinosaurs with sharp teeth are not impressed by his size and challenge him over his lunch. A trick is needed so that the tall Diplodocus can resume his peaceful chomping.
