About the Author

Zizou Corder is Louisa Young and Isabel Adomakoh Young, whose names are too long to fit on the front of a book. Louisa is a grown-up and has written five grown-up books. Isabel is a kid and has written mostly schoolwork. The original Zizou is Isabel's lizard, only he spells it Zizu. This is their third novel - the last in a trilogy that has sold more than 200,000 copies so far in the UK alone. They all live in London. Only one goes to school.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well written, pacy, and gripping. As an English teacher I'm always on the look out for books to recommend to my students and I have sung the praises of this one! The main character, Charlie, can speak Cat (domestic and wild), and the story traces his attempt to find his parents who have been kidnapped by the sinister Corpocracy. On the way he joins a circus (fantastic descriptions!) and clashes with Rafi, a vicious henchman of the Corp.

Charlie is an eminently charming and likeable hero and Corder's description of a post-energy crisis London (be warned people, this is a very likely future... no cars, no streetlights, the city deserted) is just enough like, but not like, our world to give the story another element of interest.

I loved it and have bought the trilogy for my own pleasure... will lend it to my students only if they are VERY VERY trustworthy so I can be sure I'll get it back!

I don't read books and was bored one holiday so my 11 year old told me to read the Lion Boy. I thoroughly enjoyed it and couldnt put it down. I was gutted when she told me at the end there was two more to read!. I got hooked and really enjoyed all three books. Think it would make a good family film. Worth reading if you are not a reader like me.

Kept my 10 yr old turning the pages til the end. I'd recommend getting all 3 of the trilogy together - getting them one at a time just led to frustrations!

My 7 ("Seven and three quarters actually, mummy") year old boy has LOVED these books. They are a good stretch for him - and the story lines have had him captivated since the beginning. Excellent - thank you. Would definitely recommend.

One of the best books I have ever read. (and I have read a lot)
Charlie is a daring boy whoes parents are kidnapped by the money-wanting Corpracy. But Charle can speak cat and it's suprising how useful it is to be a catspeaker sometimes...

brilliant book, completely recommended for any age, though most ideal for 8-14 years, roughly.
Great read for adults too though!
