He aquí la historia, tal como me la contó Leandro el Poderoso.

Desde hace 400 años, la Tierra es un páramo estéril. Los pocos humanos que quedan luchan por sobrevivir en la cruel ciudad de Pocatel. Su otra opción es aventurarse solos en las tierras salvajes, que están plagadas de espíritus errantes y gudrones. No duran mucho.

Leandro, un ladroncito de 13 años, y su hermana Gabi hacen lo que pueden para forjarse una vida en Pocatel. La ciudad no es amable con cascabeles como ellos, descendientes de quienes trabajaron en el valle de San Joaquín durante generaciones.

Luego de que atrapan a Gabi robando la preciada fruta de la elite pocatelana, Leandro asume la responsabilidad del robo. Su exilio resulta ser mucho más de lo que él podría haber imaginado de un simple destierro: su conciencia es colocada en un antiguo dron y... a arreglárselas solo. Pero más allá de los muros de Pocatel hay otros alebrijes que, como Leandro, quieren un mundo mejor. También hay monstruos mutantes, piratas del páramo, un oasis oculto... y la verdad.

Escrita por Donna Barba Higuera, autora de The Last Cuentista (La última cuentista), libro premiado con la Medalla Newbery y el premio Pura Belpré, llega esta nueva novela para sorprendernos y crear un nuevo mundo lleno de imaginación, espejo del nuestro.

This is the story as it was told to me by Leandro the Mighty.

For 400 years, Earth has been a barren wasteland. The few humans that survive scrape together an existence in the cruel city of Pocatel – or go it alone in the wilderness beyond, filled with wandering spirits and wyrms. They don’t last long.

13 year-old pickpocket Leandro and his sister Gabi do what they can to forge a life in Pocatel. The city does not take kindly to Cascabel like them – the descendants of those who worked the San Joaquin Valley for generations.

When Gabi is caught stealing precious fruit from the Pocatelan elite, Leando takes the fall. But his exile proves more than he ever could have imagined -- far from a simple banishment, his consciousness is placed inside an ancient drone and left to fend on its own. But beyond the walls of Pocatel lie other alebrijes like Leandro who seek for a better world -- as well as mutant monsters, wasteland pirates, a hidden oasis, and the truth.

From Donna Barba Higuera, Newbery and Pura Belpré Medal-winning author of The Last Cuentista, comes another novel to astonish us and create a whole new imaginative world, that holds a mirror to our own.
