9780141317564: Lionboy: The Chase

Charlie Ashanti is on the run from an amazing floating circus with six homesick beautiful Lions and an extraordinary sabre-toothed creature. Charlie has promised to help the Lions find their way home to Morocco but he has his own problems: his Mum and Dad have been kidnapped and he is determined to find them. His new friends, King Boris of Bulgaria and his security chief, Edward, have promised to help. But Charlie wonders if he was wrong to trust them when he and the Lions find themselves held virtually as prisoners in Venice. They eventually escape with the help of a friendly gondolier, and after a dangerous sea journey the Lions finally make it home and Charlie is at last reunited with his parents.

Review:

At the end of Zizou Corder's best-selling Lionboy, Charlie Ashanti--a boy who could speak ‘cat’--was left aboard the Orient Express bound for Venice. In his company are a prehistoric beast and six lions he helped free from a Floating Circus in Paris and from the clutches of a nasty, mysterious Lion trainer called Maccomo. Next door to him on the train is a friendly Bulgarian King called Boris who has taken Charlie and the lions under his protection. Charlie's parents have been kidnapped by the agents of the sinister Corporacy, probably for inventing the cure to Asthma, so he must find them, and the lions would like to return to their ancestral home in Morocco. It is under these circumstances that Corder’s Lionboy trilogy embarks upon its latest chapter. What a beginning!

Charlie and the Lions get to Venice and become involved in a revolution there. Charlie has the brilliant idea of introducing Primo, the giant Smilodon, to the Doge, as a cover for an escape attempt. After all, he has the lions of St Mark's, or at least their statues. The Venetians think that Charlie is an Angel and that the mysterious creature is sent by God to save them. But there’s still Rafi Sadler to deal with, implicated in Charlie’s kidnap, and the furious Maccomo the lion-tamer. Add a shipwreck, a really good chameleon called Ninu, and a few more shocking surprises and you’ve got the recipe for a stunningly entertaining sequel and riotously good yarn.

Corder’s stories are action-packed and great fun to read. They’re pure adventure for young readers with not the slightest whiff of a ‘crossover’ accusation coming anywhere near them. The concluding volume, Lionboy: The Truth, should be a corker. (Age 9 and over) --John McLay

Review:

This is not just a fun book; it is also a wise one. Roll on the finale -- The Independent

Thrilling moments and dangerous scrapes… We give this read a big paws up! -- Funday Times
