This book is the first of a trilogy: the second book is "The Chase" and the third is "The Truth".
The books involve a boy who, as a baby, was scratched by a cheetah. Henceforth, he can speak not just English, but CAT - and cat from the last of the sabre tooth tigers to a primped and puffed up Parisian lady cat, and some rather fierce alley cats. The boy's parents are kidnapped, because of the work they are doing as scientists. The boy sets out to find them, and this is when he realises how useful it is is to be able to speak Cat. He spends some time on a crazy circus ship, from which he rescues six homesick lions.

I'll not say any more about these books except that they are a MUST to read (10 years +), and would make a fabulous film. (I have written to Sir Peter Jackson suggesting this as his next project, but apparently he has a new project in mind.) I only hope that Disney doesn't get hold of them and turn them into cartoons. With all of thetechnology availabale via Weta Workshop and others, there is no need for "proper" stories to be "dumbed down" into cartoon form.

What an original and entertaining trilogy. I loved some of the ideas in here, and the mythical nature of the story. Plus, who wouldn't want to be able to talk to cats and have them talk back.

My 8 year old son loved this. I read it with him on a night before bed but then he took it to school and read it in silent reading. I missed it but he managed to relay the plot brilliantly every day meaning it was exciting to him and easily understood - great!

Loved it for years - only bought a new one because one of my discs finally gave up the ghost

I highly recommended this book. I couldn't put it down and am looking forward to reading the other two books.
