Drako, a red dragon, was not born like the other dragons and didn’t learn to fly like them either. Locked up by Mildred Bruxelas, the witch who created him, the young dragon tries to understand the world with the help of a small fly, who likes to say everything that comes into his head. When they discover that Mildred and the Mafia of Mages are planning to strip the leathery hide from the golden dragons, Drako and his faithful friend venture into threatening territory, where they face enemies whose cruelty knows no bounds.
"Friendship between a dragon and a fly teaches young people to overcome pessimism and problems with self-esteem."
"Drako brings history that makes us reflect about the differences"
"When I read this book, I had the impression of reading something like Harry Potter"
"There is, in my humble opinion, no greater praise for someone's writing. Wanting to read more of that author's plot"
"The book is wonderful, very reminiscent of Terry Pratchett's narrative in Discworld and the tribute tournament in the Goblet of Fire. But the comparison is not fair, because Paola makes a whole narrative of it"
