This old Filipino fable is about a noisy gecko called Tuko who decided to stay in a small village where birds’ songs filled the air. Tuko’s voice replaced the birds’ songs by repeatedly shouting his own name, depriving the villagers of sleep. Fortunately, the birds found a way to silence Tuko, restoring the peace, quiet and melodious singing of birds in the village.
