Debut book of Palmarucci selected at Illustr'arte in 2011 and at the prestigious CJ Picture Book 2011.
“Suddenly a man started scenting like a rose.” A penetrating and intense scent. Intrusive.
In his house, in his palace, in his neighborhood, now everything scents like a rose. Ad nauseam. Up to unliveability. Any other different odour is covered by this incredible scent: women can not tell if the food is burning, and the cats can't catch any mouse. The professors of the botanical Academy handle to solve the problem , making the man a living wonder to study and show off. Until one day, suddenly, he loses the scent. And freedom. A story about the power of smell: Patrick Süskind knew, that we can't escape perfumes, "because the scent is the brother of breath." Those who live near landfills and overflowing dumpsters of many of our cities know it very well. But it is also a short story on the trouble of being special. A prodigious man and a life under glass in Claudia Palmarucci images making her debut as illustrator.
