Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears
By Verna Aardma
Illustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon
Caldecott Medal winner
Ages 5-8 years 

This West African folktale tells the story of when a mosquito told a lie to one animal, setting off such a chain of events that culminated in the owl not signaling the sun to come up. King Lion calls a meeting of the animals to get to the bottom of the problem. The ending explains why mosquitoes buzz in people's ears.
