Daniel Pinkwater has written about one hundred books, many of them good. Lizard Music was almost the first one he wrote, and remains his personal favorite. It is entirely his own work, and the story that it was discovered as a manuscript inserted in a bale of banana leaves, probably to increase the weight, is merely legend, and without foundation in fact.Review:
“Pinkwater is the uniquest. And so are his books. Each uniquer than the last...A delight in oddness. A magic that’s not like anyone else’s.” —Neil Gaiman
“No author has ever captured the great fun of being weird, growing up as a happy mutant, unfettered by convention, as well as Pinkwater has...It’s one of those books that, in the right hands at the right time, can change your life for the better and forever.” —Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing.net
"Lizard Music is.... funny, properly paranoid, shot through with bad puns and sweet absurdities, and all about a baffled kid intent on tracking reality (as slippery as lizards) in a media-spooked milieu." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Wildly imaginative.... This is a natural high." —Booklist (starred review)
"A writer for smart kids.... Pinkwater writes for, and about, people who are not ashamed to look at life a little differently." —Wired
