-Bird! Can you puff me up a little more?
Although the bird saw that he was very red, he did what he asked and carefully putting his beak inside it, he inflated it more.
The balloon seeing that everyone nudged each other when they saw it go by felt more interesting and wanted to get bigger.

But the balloon, seeing the admiration that aroused in its wake and feeling more and more powerful, insisted:
"I want more air!"
