Reviews about Why Mosquitos Buzz in People's Ears (7):
Rigiot
This is my favorite children's book of all time. The illustrations are the best I've ever seen, and while dark, they are very creative and fascinating. The story itself is also very good, and I love that it has a point at the end, with a "moral of the story", without being a very long book. I think all children should read it, if parents could get past the dark tone of the illustrations.

Remembered liking this book as a child so I just bought it for my son for Christmas. It's still a good story, but the images are slightly scarier than I remembered. My son seems fine with it but it's something to note.

I remember hearing this story for the first time as a child on Reading Rainbow sound effects and all, so when i saw it on Amazon I decided to buy it for my sister as a birthday gift. It was a read down memory lane that we can relive over and over again.

This was a gift for my 4 year old nephew who is very into mosquitoes for some reason. He loved this book!

I read this book as a child and enjoyed it. The illustrations are so memorable that I recognized the book immediately when I saw it on Amazon. I bought it for my 6-year-old son and he loved it. He was sad about the baby owl dying but found the rest of the book rather amusing. He recognized and loved that the book had a similarity to The House That Jack Built, as it recites the events adding one at a time.

Excellent gift for a teenage young lady relatively new to reading books!

I loved this book as a child because its a great story with a universal message. I married a Nigerian and I can say all West-African children's books have a positive themes and its certainly something I would like my son to be familiar with. The book was also in great condition.
Took as a gift to a friend’s child in West Africa. He loved it!
