New York : Putnam's, 1989
IL 5-8 RL 6.9
is an unusual fantasy where a young boy is left to fend for himself when
his parents take off for a second honeymoon. He decides to do all the things
he's ever wanted to but couldn't -- ride the bus into the city, watch the
late, late show on TV -- anything he wants. Strange things start to happen
when the chicken man keeps showing up. He takes a cab and there's the chicken
man. He rides the bus, there's the chicken man. He shops for a record --
there's the chicken man. Curiosity gets the best of him and he decides
to take the chicken man up on his offer to guide him to an invisible island
where lizards watch humans watching TV. Is chicken man a genius or just
crazy? If you've ever tried to figure out if someone is for real, you'll
enjoy LIZARD MUSIC.
