When his parents are kidnapped, what?s ten-year-old Charlie Ashanti to do? Rescue them, that?s what! He doesn?t know who has taken his parents, or why. But he does know that one special talent will aid him on his journey?his amazing ability to speak Cat. Charlie calls on his clever feline friends?from stray city cats to magnificent caged lions?for help. With them by his side, Charlie uses wit and courage to try to find his parents before it?s too late.

With its whirlwind action and suspense, Lionboy is a nonstop page-turner. Already being compared to J. K. Rowling, this mother-daughter writing team will fascinate readers of all ages with their Cat-speaking hero!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LionBoy Is The Best By far the best book I have ever read. It tells about a some what ordinary boy(some what because he is able to speak cat)who learns his parents(scientists)have been kidnapped.He travels across Europe with a circus and occasionally is able to get information, from all sorts of cats, concerning his parents whereabouts. As the cats give him information he must keep his secret to himself, for if he doesn't he may just be caught in his enemies arms. This is a great adventurous book!
