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.
