Young Tepary Jones leads a life of constant adventure. But he gets more excitement than even he can handle when he plays a flute he finds in an ancient ruin. Magic from the Distant Time changes him into a bushy-tailed woodrat and ensnares him in a world of danger and suspense. His parents don't realize what's happened to him-only his dog Dusty knows. With Dusty alone to protect him from nightly predators, Tepary must unravel the mystery behind the owner of the flute-Kokopelli himself. In Kokopelli's Flute, award-winning author Will Hobbs has created a unique and richly imagined world celebrating the timeless magic of nature and the lessons it teaches. Johnny Heller's entrancing narration continues a tradition of excellence started in: A Christmas Sonata and The Hostage.

"What happens when a boy plays an ancient flute found in a Native American ruin? Tepary Jones finds out, calling forth magic from long ago, which each night changes him into a bushy-tailed rat. Johnny Heller relates this first-person narrative in a clear, detached, matter-of-fact tenor that sounds as young as Tepary. Hobbs's timeless tale of remaining in harmony with nature translates well to audio. Heller expresses Tepary's fears and excitement as he experiences life as part-time rat, part-time boy. He fully sketches Hobbs's memorable characters within a beautiful Southwestern setting. J.H.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
