curbj402 said: This book tells the story of how mosquitoes came to buzz in people’s ears. One animal’s impatience leads many animals into a frenzy, and a big misunderstanding about the poor mosquito. Every animal that is presented thickens the suspense in the plot. It is clearly written so as the author builds on more characters you could pause and talk about how the story evolves as they are introduced. This book is classified as a porquoi: “a story that explains natural traits.” (
