    Fun and Informative, like Loco for Lizards

    This is a breezily written, fun book that's also informative about a subject that deserves attention, the mysterious flute playing icon. Like it's companion book, Loco for Lizards, by Jim Cherry, it's a great, funny read that also packs in a lot of solid info.
