Rasabadú is a paper dragon who lives in a gloomy warehouse together with tarantulas, flies, mice and other creatures. Rasabadú listens to the radio, reads the newspaper used to create his own body, and repeats the news without knowing exactly what he is saying. He walks through the warehouse, says hello to any creature he meets. He is happy, until one day he gets a cold. From that day on he will live in doubt: will he sneeze fire, thus destroying himself and all his friends, because he is a dragon? Or, since he is made out of paper, will he sneeze confetti? The tarantula is sure that Rasabadu’s sneeze will destroy the warehouse and their life; the other animals are not so sure; the uncertainty consumes Rasabadú. Cristina Sitja Rubio illustrates this story creating a cozy universe, giving life to this sweet dragon. The Mexican writer Edgar Omar Avilés has decided to give a portrait of Rasabadú in his most delicate moment, the moment when one is faced with his own self and his true character. An intense book that will surely bring discussion and conversation among its readers. A book to think about the identity of each one of us.
