Papagayo the parrot spends his days soaring through the skies and playing in the jungle. His raucous cries disturb the sleeping night creatures, who don't have any interest in Papagayo's games. But when the ferocious moon-dog appears in the night sky and, bite by bite, begins to devour the moon, the terrified night creatures are helpless. Only Papagayo knows how to save the moon, and the night creatures learn that Papagayo is a good friend to have - even if he is a bit NOISY.

An internationally known author and illustrator, Gerald McDermott has created numerous books and animated films for children. His rare ability to evoke the power of myth through simple language and brilliant art has earned him many honors, including a Caldecott Medal for "Arrow to the Sun" and a Caldecot Honor for "Anansi the Spider." An original tale, "Papagayo the Mischief Maker" features a traditional trickster hero of the Amazon rain forest.
