Bocababa is a boy with bad luck. With one eye distracted and the other surprised, he spends his days running into everything and collecting bumps because he doesn’t look where he’s going. His mouth is always open and the collar of his shirt is always wet from the drool that drips down. Raquitín is a colorless fish. He lives in the fish stand at the local fair. While the other fish get adopted right away, Raquitín grows older in a tiny fish tank. One day, Raquitín and the traveling fair comes to Bocababa’s street, and nothing will ever be the same.
