From the Author:

On the back cover of the Big Book which accom­pa­nies this book, as well as in the cas­sette, I tell the story of hav­ing once invol­un­tar­ily swal­lowed a mos­quito which flew into my mouth as I spoke. Now, I am con­cerned about the wis­dom of such can­did state­ment, since on a school visit a child told me he had enjoyed hear­ing that I eat bugs!

My objec­tive on shar­ing the gen­e­sis of this story was to point out that ideas are all around us, and the small­est event can be the ori­gin of a story. I also like to point out how writ­ing allows us to improve real­ity. My story let me res­cue that poor mos­quito of long ago.

Review:

"El Canto del mos­quito / The Song of the Teeny Tiny Mos­quito is the droll story of a frog who eats a mos­quito and whose song then sounds like that of a mos­quito. The frog is eaten by a fish, who then sings like a mos­quito, etc." - School Library Journal
