Lionboy (Google eBook)
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!
