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. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 97]
