Publisher Comments:

When his parents are kidnapped, what?s ten-year-old Charlie Ashanti to do? Rescue them, that?s what! He doesn?t know who has taken his parents, or why. But he does know that one special talent will aid him on his journey?his amazing ability to speak Cat. Charlie calls on his clever feline friends?from stray city cats to magnificent caged lions?for help. With them by his side, Charlie uses wit and courage to try to find his parents before it?s too late.

With its whirlwind action and suspense, Lionboy is a nonstop page-turner. Already being compared to J. K. Rowling, this mother-daughter writing team will fascinate readers of all ages with their Cat-speaking hero!

Review:

"British actor Jones's sonorous delivery instantly enchants listeners in this fine adaptation of Corder's (actually the pen name for a mother-daughter duo) debut novel about an unusually gifted boy and his family's connection to cats. Charlie knows that his scientist parents are working on important experiments all the time. But he had no idea that their latest project could put them all in such great danger. When Charlie comes home from school one day to find his parents have been kidnapped, he begins a heart-pounding adventure during which he must save his family by using his special power-the ability to communicate with cats. He soon leaves the streets of London and gains passage (and a lion 'taming' job) with a floating circus, all the while picking up clues about his parents from felines in various ports. A daring escape from the circus, with lions in tow, eventually leads Charlie to some new and influential friends who vow to help him in his search for his parents. Simon compels listeners through the excitement with smooth pacing and a rhythm that sustains the perfect level of suspense. In his command, the numerous bad guys sound appropriately shady, and circus performers take on vibrant color. And readers are treated to lion dialogue as well. The story is planned to continue in two more Corder novels-and hopefully two more Simon narrations. Ages 8-up. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:
