Description from the publisher:
The fifth book in the Songs of Magic series!

Jason, Erin, and the other Zebras go on a world tour with their enchanted instruments, only to encounter the mysterious supernatural Folk of India and the Far East. While they tangle with their record company, Erin tries to avoid dealing with the secrets she's learned about herself, while Jason pieces together a mystery surrounding a very special golden guitar called Caliburn.

In Faerie, Aoide the Lutist and her troupe finally return home from their long adventure. They're struggling to get new gigs, but Aoide senses opportunity in the form of special new magic mirrors that can broadcast concerts, plays, and other entertainment all over Faerie...

This fifth book in the series picks up right where FAIRY LAND left off.  They do need to be read in order.

Albert (my son) and I have continued this series as a read-aloud in the car on our way to and from work.

We're back with The Rioting Zebras, Jason, Mitch, Erin, and 'Dred, in the human world and all of the wild and bizarre creatures of the fairy world that we have grown to love plus many new faces as well.  In fact, in Fae, they now have a new invention.  It’s a type of mirror that broadcasts Fairyvision shows – news, concerts, and soap operas.  Aoide sees this as an opportunity for the troupe.  Now that they have new instruments, they just may find their fame broadcast throughout the Realms.

We have continued to love this series.  Both of us were laughing out loud throughout this.  This series continues to be very good.  Mr. Bryan writes terrifically detailed descriptions that bring this fantastic world alive.

Grammar/editing:  ungraded – since I was listening instead of reading.  I don't know, but Albert said it was well done.
