Daniel Pinkwater Audio Books

Boing Boing has a post today about the Daniel Pinkwater book Lizard Music being released in a New York Review of Books' Children's Collection edition. That's great—Lizard Music is one of my favorite books and it's one I re-read every few years. I was about to post a comment over there, pointing people to the free audiobook version available on pinkwater.com when I remembered that it had been a hair annoying to download all the chapters separately, and the tracks were labeled inconsistently… it's looking a gift-horse in the mouth, I know, BUT the audiobooks are under a BY-NC-ND 2.5 (Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs) Creative Commons license, which means that I can clean up those track titles, and zip all the tracks, and make it available here:

There are nine other audiobooks available, but the other long one, that had the same annoyances was The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death (and it's also another of my favorite books). So here you go:
