Pinkwater's stuff is easy to like, and Lizard Music is no exception. One of the blurbs on the back of the book says that "Pinkwater writes books for smart kids" and that is a good assessment. All of his main characters are just slightly off-center. His novel "Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death" was a favorite of mine when I was in middle school, but I was never able to find other stuff written by him at the time. Now I am slowly working my way through other Pinkwater novels.

Lizard Music is the second one that I read this year (the first being Alan Mendelsohn). I liked it, but I didn't find the story quite as compelling as Alan Mendelsohn. Cute story with a fun conclusion that keeps trucking along.
