Author Info
Leo Dillon
Leo Dillon was born 11 days earlier than his future wife and creative partner, Diane Worsley. He was raised in Brooklyn, New York by parents who were immigrants from Trinidad. Dillon attended the High School of Industrial Design, after which he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. When released from the Navy, he attended Parsons School of Design where he met Diane. The couple won the Caldecott Medal in 1975 for Verna Aardema's WHY MOSQUITOES BUZZ IN PEOPLE'S EARS: A WEST AFRICAN TALE. The next year they illustrated Margaret Musgrove's ASHANTI TO ZULU, for which they received their second Caldecott Medal. They were the first illustrators to win back-to-back Caldecotts.
Diane Worsley (later, Dillon) was born only 11 days after her future husband and collaborator, Leo Dillon. She attended Los Angles City College but dropped out after contracting tuberculosis. During her recovery, she had to live in a sanitarium where she spent most of her time reading, drawing, or knitting, as she could undergo no physical activity. After her recovery, she attended Skidmore College and then transferred to Parsons School of Design, where she met Leo Dillon. The couple won the Caldecott Medal in 1975 for Verna Aardema's WHY MOSQUITOES BUZZ IN PEOPLE'S EARS: A WEST AFRICAN TALE. The next year they illustrated Margaret Musgrove's ASHANTI TO ZULU, for which they received their second Caldecott Medal. They were the first illustrators to win back-to-back Caldecotts.
From the Publisher
Annotation A retelling of the African legend that explains the annoying habit of mosquitoes. When a mosquito tells a ridiculous story to an iguana, the iguana gets so fed up with the mosquito's lies that he puts two sticks in his ears so he can block out the sound of the mosquito's voice. Unfortunately, this sets off a chain of disastrous events that ultimately results in all of the animals being very angry with the mosquito. Today, when mosquitoes buzz in people's ears they are asking if the other animals are still angry with them over their long-ago bad behavior. Illustrated with watercolor paintings. Winner of the 1976 Caldecott Medal.
Editors Note A mosquito annoyed the iguana, who frightened the python, who scared the rabbit?and now the whole jungle is in an uproar because the sun won't rise. The animals discuss the situation and decide to punish the mosquito. Even today whenever we hear a mosquito buzz, we smack it hard! Leo and Diane Dillon won the 1976 Caldecott Medal for Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears, making Leo Dillon the first African-American artist to be so honored. Now this classic, which has delighted millions of children, is at last available in Spanish.
Editors Note 2 Presents a Spanish-language edition of the Caldecott medal-winning African folktale about the wild chain reaction of events that takes place in the jungle after the mosquito bothers the iguana.
