KIRKUS REVIEW

 ``Kevin Spoon had a nice life...his own VCR...his own computer ...pizza every day''--a kid's perfect dream. Mason Mintz ``wore cheap sneakers,'' and his parents grew pumpkins in the back yard. Still, Mason's doodle flute is unique, and he won't sell it or trade it. He'll give it to Kevin--but then it won't be his, so he can't play it--or show Kevin how. Solution: sharing. Pinkwater's mock-simplistic, tongue-in-cheek telling is quietly hilarious; his deft caricatures extend the joke. A telling fable that older kids will also enjoy. (Picture book. 5+)
