Reviews

"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. When I was a kid, Pinkwater novels like Lizard Music...made me intensely proud to be a little off-center and weird -- they taught me to woo the muse of the odd and made me the happy adult I am today. The NYRB edition of Lizard Music is a beautiful... hardcover, a testament to Pinkwater's influence on generations of readers. 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 "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." --Kathy Ceceri, Wired.com "I do believe that Daniel Pinkwater is my favorite writer, living or dead." --Cory Doctorow "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
