Description
(1976 Caldecott Medal Winner) Beautifully illustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon in stylized panels of airbrushed color, this book by Verna Aardema retells a West African pourquoi story for readers up to 8. When Mosquito annoys Iguana with a silly story, the grumpy reptile blocks his ears with sticks so he can hear no more of it, setting in motion a disastrous chain of events and resulting in a council of the animals to discuss whose fault it all was—and explaining why Mosquito still whines in people's ears.

"A familiar folk tale, well told.... Stunning full-color illustrations tell the story with humor and power."—School Library Journal (starred review)
