“The acrobat worked in a circus. Nobody ever noticed him. They watched the astounding Adele. And Hercule the weightlifter. And Marguerite the Magnificent. So the acrobat decided he would leave.” He wanders into a nearby park and tries to grab the attention of the playing children. He juggles, balances and pretends to fall, but after being ignored he decides “to feed the birds instead.” The acrobat soon finds himself covered with multitudes of colourful birds and he now has everyone’s attention.
