En estos cuentos desfilan personajes muy diversos, que viven historias a veces sublimes. Hay boxeadores de un juego de video que aleccionan al niño vicioso sobre lo bueno que es leer; un mantis que se vuelve violoncellista, como el par de jóvenes que ensayan todas las mañanas en un banco bajo el árbol en que el insecto vive; un abuelo y su nieta de tres años, que cuidan juntos las rosas de su vivero, con cuya venta sobreviven; un gusano extranjero que llega a una morera pretendiendo que los nativos le dejen trabajar allí, solo para recibir su negativa; un gorrioncito que hurta comida de los platos de los comensales del bar que está frente a su árbol; unas abejas que se equivocan al elegir como su Presidenta a quien hace más publicidad y ofrece más, pero que pronto corrigen y eligen a la más trabajadora, que logra mejorar sus vidas...

In these stories parade very diverse characters, who live sometimes sublime stories. There are video game boxers who lecture the vicious child on how good it is to read; a mantis that becomes a cellist, like the pair of young people who rehearse every morning on a bench under the tree where the insect lives; a grandfather and his three-year-old granddaughter, who together take care of the roses in their nursery, with whose sale they survive; a foreign worm that arrives at a mulberry tree expecting the natives to let him work there, only to receive their refusal; a little sparrow that steals food from the plates of the guests at the bar that is in front of his tree; some bees that make a mistake when choosing as their President the one who advertises the most and offers the most, but who soon correct and choose the hardest working one, who manages to improve her lives...
