Lionboy by Zizou Corder
Book DescriptionCharlie Ashanti, the hero of LIONBOY, speaks cat - the language of all cats wild and domestic alike. His unusual talent helps him on his quest to find his kidnapped parents who have discovered a cure for asthma. The local cats of his home town (a futuristic London) start him on his search to solve the mystery of his missing parents, which leads him across the channel on board a circus ship bound for Paris. It is on this wonderful vessel that Charlie establishes a close relationship with the homesick circus lions who become his accomplices. But Charlie is in danger, for close behind him on his trail, is a crony of the mysterious group who have kidnapped his parents. They want Charlie too.

Lionboy: The Truth, Paperback (February 2007)» View all books by Zizou Corder
Charlie Ashanti - lion-rescuer, shipwreck-survivor and Catspeaker - is safe with his parents. Or is he? Old enemies are closing in: Maccomo, the liontrainer, longs for revenge, and the evil Corporacy is still hunting Charlie and his mum and dad. They could hide. But the time to hide is over. Now is the time to fight back.
US Kirkus Review » In the third and final installment of the trilogy, it's Charlie-lion-rescuer, shipwreck survivor, circus veteran, son of asthma-cure-inventing scientists-who is kidnapped. Page one quickly recaps the action as friends and enemies from the previous tales join the chase to rescue, or thwart, cat-speaking Charlie as he tries to outwit the evil Corporacy. Several plot devices, reversed situations and wily details gear up the fast action and rapid pace: a ship named Old Yeller, a cameo appearance by a man named Fidel from Cuba and a conversing chameleon. So who's on the boats, following whom, why and where? A rip-roaring ending resolves the conspiracy (based on asthma-inducing cats). The fans who have been chomping at the bit for the conclusion can now sink their teeth into it. Skimpy black-and-white drawings don't heighten the drama; maps would have sufficed. (Fiction. 9-12) (Kirkus Reviews)
