Lizard Music by Hexaditidom Lizard Music by Hexaditidom
A quick fanart! There was a book I read in 5th grade, called "Lizard Music" by D. Manus Pinkwater. So I ordered a copy, and it was funnier, stranger, and more enjoyable than I remembered. I was sad not to find any fanart of it around here, though I guess it's pretty obscure. It involves a weird kid named Victor, a mysterious "Chicken Man", and lots and lots of lizards. And Walter Cronkite.
Definitely one of the books that shaped my childhood.

LOVE that book! All the lizards were named Reynold, or something like that. :D

Yesssss! Loved that too - Reynold, Helena, Raymond. The one thing I thought when I read those were, those HAVE to be old TV characters. No specific names came to mind though.

I must get this book. How do you think it compares to Pratchett?

I am ashamed to say I haven't read anything by him yet :[

You may well like him, I suggest starting with a later work like Mort or Witches Abroad, his early works hadn't developed his true potential and his last few books are pretty hefty.
