Clodomiro Fernández el rey sin corona

$13.59

A Clodomiro Fernández le gustaba tanto pintar que se olvidaba de prestar atención en clase. Su maestra no lo comprendía y estuvo a punto de repetir de grado.. Fue entonces que sus padres decidieron cambiarlo de escuela. Él sintió que la culpa de todo la tenía su mejor amiga, Paulita Virulenta, y resolvió no volver a hablarle por el resto de su vida. En la escuela nueva todo era demasiado grande para Clodo: las puertas, las maestras, sus compañeros de clase que le llevaban más de tres cabezas, y él no se sentía feliz. Tal vez por eso decidió hacer lo que más le gustaba: imaginar un mundo y pintarlo tal como lo soñaba dentro de su mente.

Clodomiro Fernández liked to paint so much that he forgot to pay attention in class. His teacher did not understand him and he was about to repeat the grade. It was then that his parents decided to change schools. He felt that his best friend, Paulita Virulent, was to blame for everything, and he resolved not to speak to her again for the rest of his life. In the new school, everything was too big for Clodo: the doors, the teachers, his classmates who were more than three heads taller than him, and he wasn't happy. Maybe that's why he decided to do what he liked the most: imagine a world and paint it just as he dreamed it inside his mind.
