Overview

Lionboy by Zizou Corder

Charlie lives in a future where phones are powered by the sun, cars are banned and companies are more powerful than countries. Charlie is a normal boy, except for one thing: he can speak to cats. When his parents are kidnapped, he sets off on a rescue mission, with help from a floating circus and its pride of lions.

About the Author

Zizou Corder is Louisa Young and Isabel Adomakoh Young, whose names are too long to fit on the cover of a book. Louisa is an adult and has written five adult books and far too many newspaper and magazine articles; Isabel is a kid and has written mostly schoolwork. The original Zizou is Isabel's Lizard. This is its first novel. They all live in London. Only one goes to school.

Louisa Young was a freelance journalist for many years, writing for national newspapers, motorcycle magazines and women's magazines. She studied history at Trinity College Cambridge, and has of course worked as a street performer, a motorcycle messenger, a cocktail waitress, a singer, and so on. Her first book, A GREAT TASK OF HAPPINESS: THE LIFE OF KATHLEEN SCOTT, was a biography of her grandmother, the sculptress widow of  Scott of the Antarctic. She is also the author of a romantic adventure trilogy for adults and THE BOOK OF THE HEART, a cultural history of our most symbolic organ. LION BOY, cowritten with her daughter Isabel, is her first children's novel. She lives in London with her daughter, their lizard Zizou, several spiders and a dead tortoise.

The other two... not so much. I recomend stopping after book one. The writing goes downhill after this.

The first book of a trilogy, Lionboy is very well done. The writing is unique, I've never read another book with a voice quite like this one. The story is compelling and original; I've read this series several times and it still remains one of my favorites.

Charlie, a 12 year old son of two brilliant scientists, has an amazing gift. He can talk to cats, for when he was young, he accidentally got a drop of leopard blood in his blood stream and soon after that, he was talking to cats. Only his parents knew about his gift. What Charlie didn¿t know is that his parents were working on something secret. One day while Charlie was walking home, he noticed that his mum¿s lab in the backyard was open. A boy named Rafi, a type of boy you don¿t want to hang around with, was there. He said that Charlie¿s mum and dad were on a business trip, but Charlie knew something had happened to them. So Charlie set out to find his mum and dad that was way bigger than what he thought. On his way he meets some friends and also some enemies. Will Charlie be able to find his mum and dad, will he be able to save them? I really liked this book. It had a lot of suspense in it. It made you think what will happen next. The one thing I didn¿t like about the book is all the confusing words. Some of them I did not understand at all. I still think it is still a really good book. A person who likes adventure and mystery should read this book. You never know what will happen next and to find out every thing you have to read all three books in the trilogy. This really is a great book and you should read it.

This book simply captured my heart. The way that the author expresses the story is simply amazing. This is a must read book. Get your hands on this book in any way you can. The topic is interesting and kept my attention the whole time. It was so amazing that I went on and read the other two books in the series and they were just as incredible. READ THEM ALL!!

I could NOT put down this book. The thing I admire most about it is that a mother-daughter team wrote it!!! Well, done and well written, Louisa and Isabel. P.S. I cannot find the next two books on Barnes and Noble. Can some one help me out?

"Lionboy," by Zizou Corder is the first book in a trilogy of the same name. The book has a fast, action-packed beginning but starts getting gradually slower towards the middle and end. However, "Lionboy" is a good novel which is unique and enjoyable.
