In Castelo Rá-Tim-Bum 300-year-old Nino looks like he is eight or nine years old. Described by Graeber as a "Brazilian counterpart" to Harry Potter, Nino tries to write a book of spells. His aunt and uncle criticize his apprenticeship and Nino wants to play with ordinary children. Losangela, a relative, begins conspiring with real estate developers who hope to tear down Nino's family's mansion.
