Kokopelli’s Flute by Will Hobbs is an amazing adventure of a young boy named Tepary. Tepary was born creative, fun, and of coarse up to anything. But when Tep finds a flute in Picture House, his favorite cave dwelling, he doesn’t know what’s about to happen. Once Tepary plays Kokopelli’s Flute, he unleashes a power to turn into a pack rat. Tep just doesn’t want this happening to him. He has to stop it.
One day, Tep sees these people at Picture House. He thinks they’re stealing and he knows they aren’t supposed to be there. This makes another big dip in Tep’s life. He has to stop these robbers. But how does he do it – call the police or just try to catch them himself? Everything you could imagine happens in Tep’s life. It all depends on him.
Then one day, a man named Cricket comes to Teps house. But why is he really here? Cricket helps Tep and his family out, especially when Tep’s mother is sick. But Cricket isn’t really Cricket. How does Tep know that he is not Cricket?
I thought this book was all mystical and fictional, but at the same time realistic and helped me learn. Tep has this amazing personality – courageous and a can do guy. Hobbs, I think, did such an amazing job writing this book. The characters stand out, and every paragraph makes you want more. I just really wish there could be at least a sequel of this. It truly is a jaw-dropping story. Every sentence is always so powerful and descriptive. He always tells you what all the characters are thinking. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants a mouth watering story to read.
