    1. Pinkwater wrote this novella with Luqman Keele and--let's cut to the chase--it's as whackadoodle as they come. Just the first few chapters bring a possible parental killing by headhunters and/or mysterious operatives, paragraphs of Indonesian vocabulary and lore, unlicensed aircraft piloting, forced assimilation into a revolutionary army, a mission to bomb tribal villagers (unwillingly), and a nearly-fatal strike by lightning. Pirates, a sultan, ancient magic, batik-making techniques, stabbings, [...]

    2. I feel like I've uncovered a forgotten Pinkwater treasure that never saw much light of day. It's a wild ride, as always with Pinkwater. At some points I was scratching my head over the mention of the narrator getting high and guerilla rebels killing natives in the jungle (is this meant to be a middle reader book like most of his other books?), but these mostly just added to the zany appeal. I don't think the man could write a bad book if he tried to.

    3. A bizarre acid trip. Quirky. Something of an artifact of the late 70s, soting on that level. Not particularly good.
