Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Charlie and the lions have made it safely to Venice. But King Boris's palace becomes a prison rather than a haven: The king's right-hand man has secretly made plans to give the lions to the Doge (Venice's much-hated ruler). When word arrives from the cat grapevine that Charlie's parents are not being held in Italy after all, Charlie knows he must take fast action--not only to rescue his lion friends but also to continue his search for his parents. He receives help from a gondolier, and during a city uprising against the Doge, Charlie and the lions escape by boat to Morocco--where more danger (in the form of Maccomo and Rafi) awaits them. But also waiting: Charlie's parents!

About the Author

ZIZOU CORDER is the pen name for a mother-daughter team of authors. Louisa Young grew up in London and studied history at Cambridge. She has written another trilogy for adults featuring a belly-dancing, motorcycle-riding single mom (Baby Love, Desiring Cairo, and Tree of Pearls), as well as a non-fiction book, The Book of the Heart.

Her ten-year-old daughter, Isabel Adomakoh Young contributed plot and character details, some of which mirror her own life--like Charlie, the hero of Lionboy Isabel is the child of an English woman and an African man and, also like Charlie, she suffers asthma.

The pen name Zizou Corder comes from Isabel's pet lizard, Zizu. They all live together in London.

Originally from Wiltshire, England, award-winning narrator SIMON JONES is perhaps most often recognized as 'Arthur Dent' in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (both radio and TV versions) or as 'Bridey' in the classic TV mini-series "Brideshead Revisited".

He has been seen in such films as Privates in Parade, Brazil, 12 Monkeys, Miracle on 34th Street (remake), and Devil's Own; most recently on TV as a judge in OZ and as 'C.S. Lewis' in PBS's A Question of God; and regularly on stage, including 10 major roles on Broadway. In 2004 his audio book narrations won him AudioFile magazine's "Golden Voice" award, and Publisher's Weekly "Narrator of the Year."
