Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears suffers a bit from coming a week after Arrow to the Sun, which had such gorgeous illustrations that almost everything would look a bit flat by comparison; the colors in Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears are more muted, and very nice in their way, but they don't cater to my preference for the eye-searing.

Also, the story made me feel kind of bad for the mosquito in the end. This is probably the first and only time in my life I have ever felt bad for a mosquito. But in the story, the mosquito accidentally kicks off a chain of events that ends with the owl refusing to call the sun to rise, and the council of animals traces this back to the mosquito and then they all chant "Punish the mosquito! Punish the mosquito!"

And now the mosquito goes around buzzing "Zeee! Is everyone still angry at me?" in people's ears, and how can I not feel bad for the mosquito after that?
