Este es Don Nicanor,
que vivía en una flor.
Esto que os voy a contar
lo saben aquí y allá:
que el bueno de Nicanor
montó un circo por amor.

The story told in verse is about Don Nicanor, an amazing and selfless character who travels the world saving animals in trouble. He rescues a cow, a monkey, a penguin, a bear, a cat, a dog, a sperm whale, a donkey, and together with them, they decide to open a circus. Each animal contributes their unique skill to the circus.

The story is accompanied by music written for Toy piano and ensemble based on the verses of the great Valencian poet and pedagogue Mar Benegas. The story of Don Nicanor and his circus is illustrated by the artist Ximo Abadía, and it is a great way to introduce children to the world of literature and art.
