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. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 11/1/2013

    " Read this with my son and middle daughter. They dug it, and I enjoyed it mostly, as well. The main character undergoes a singular transformation... not into a wolf or coyote or jaguar... into a packrat. Gotta love it! Effortlessly combines Southwestern indigenous lore with young adult concerns. "

    " A favorite of mine. I first read it in the hospital in 8th grade and instantly adored it. It seems really dated in retrospect, but it was dated even when I read it (2001). It's still very good, though. "
