5.0 out of 5 stars A SPELLBINDING READING, 25 Mar 2004
This review is from: Lionboy (Audio Cassette)
Broadway and film veteran Simon Jones gives a zesty, fulsome reading of this unusual tale about a boy who speaks a strange language - Cat. Yes, Charlie Ashanti can speak the language of cats. Fortunately so as he needs all the feline help he can get in this first adventure in a planned trilogy.
Charlie came home from school one day and found his parents gone - kidnaped. What can Charlie do but go in search of them? His quest, first aided by stray city cats, proves fruitless. Undaunted the boy presses on by joining a floating circus en route to Paris. Once on board he enlists the help of the caged lions by offering them their freedom in return.
Of course, there are bad guys here - thugs who would do him harm and a none too happy lion tamer. The unique cast of characters almost equals the unheard of adventures encountered by Charlie.
We can only eagerly await the second installment from this spellbinding mother-daughter team. (Zizou Corder is Louisa Young, the author of several books, and Isabel Adomakoh Young who is a little young to have written very much yet.)
