It’s late and the moon is full. Andres and Juliana are settling in for a delicious night’s sleep when suddenly...bzzzzz...a mosquito flies into their room. They hide under the covers, they hide under the bed. Unable to escape the sound, they leave the house, hoping to find help in the jungle. But the animals they encounter — a monkey, a snake, and a crocodile — are all asleep. A kindly owl offers to fly them home. There they find a frog on the windowsill who knows just what to do about the mosquito.
