Lists with This Book. I’d really describe this as fantasy tfilogy.
Though if I’m honest it doesn’t really feature many of the ingredients I personally consider are required for the fantasy adventure recipe.
So what makes this fantasy adventure? Well, it’s clearly set in some sort of post-fossil-fuel fut Well! Well, it’s clearly set in some sort of post-fossil-fuel future. The implications of this aren’t really explored in complete depth.
The world is our world in the future, but I get the feeling that some technology has moved forwards and some has moved backwards. It’s a very familiar setting, with a few twists and quirks in to surprise you. Now the focus of the plot is Charlie Ashanti.
Near the beginning of the book, his parents are whisked away leaving him alone. He has no idea of who has taken them or why. This sets up the quest of finding out why they were taken and finding them.
A big clue to the circumstances comes triolgy a suspicious local criminal appears to try and abduct Charlie. A tactic Charlie often uses to resolve conflicts and to further his goals is to play the naive child and to feign compliance. Tilogy clever in how he uses this tactic, but it isn’t the strength that makes him special.
Charlie’s real specialty is talking to cats. Now that might not seem like so much of a big deal, I know many of my female bookie friends talk to ttilogy ALL the time. The difference in Charlie’s case is that the cats talk back and Charlie is able to understand them. The characterization of cats seems realistic in this book to me. I’m not really a ‘cat person’ per se, but my perception is that the author portrays the cats’ feelings and emotions plausibly. It adds an interesting dimension to the book and gives it a specific identity.
The ability often comes into the plot too. I enjoyed the cat interactions and the tale of how he came to talk to cats. I liked the revelations regarding lion tamers that pertain to this ability too. The coded messages, between Charlie and his parents were satisfying and I really liked the characters of Charlie’s parents, Aneeba and.
Triloogy Circus section, which made up a good portion of the middle of the book was enjoyable, but for me the character I really liked was King Boris. The book ends on something of a cliffhanger.
Lionboy Trilogy by Zizou Corder
Everything is tidied up and a definite story has taken place. It’s a book with a satisfying ending, but one which definitely urges you trilgoy read on. I can’t complain too much about this strategy because it’s precisely what I aim for in my fantasy series! This author finishes the tale in a trilogy however, whereas I expect my series will run to seven or eight books.
lionnboy The writing was good, and engaging, but a little quirky at times. I’ll be honest I think my daughter Who I read this to [she’s 9] enjoyed this more than me. She’s very keen on animals and I think appreciates the concept of Charlie being able to communicate with cats. The subject matter was interesting to me, but not as gripping as a traditional fantasy world. I’d say I enjoyed Harry Potter more, even though I hated the book ending triloyg ‘ Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and thought the film ending With the book, the sock and Lucius Malfoy was much better.
What this book DOES have is an air of a mystery and a subtle criticism global pharmaceutical companies. All in all, it’s a very good trrilogy.

The thing that hindered my enjoyment more than anything was simply the fact I didn’t gel with subject rrilogy as much I do with Potter. However some children will probably prefer this. Overall a great book. Charlie’s parents are kidnapped, and Charlie goes searching for them, traveling with a circus, and becoming the LionBoy for a lion act. But trilogh lion tamer doesn’t know that Charlie can talk to cats! Charlie and his lion trliogy decide to escape the circus and strike out on their own to find his parents.
What a fun book! Just a romping, rollicking adventure story with lots of layers to it. I read this book all in one day; it’s an easy read and really captured my attention. The plot even surprised Charlie’s parents are kidnapped, and Charlie goes searching for them, traveling with a circus, and becoming the LionBoy for a lion act. The plot even surprised me a few times!
Lionboy: The Truth
I love Charlie’s character! His emotional ups and downs are perfectly timed to the pace of the plot, and give us a feel for his humanity, making him an interesting and endearing character. I loved Charlie’s parents right away too; such a quirky family with their own little language! Even the villains are superbly written- creepy and petty and spiteful and sly. I was completely fascinated by the lions and all the circus people. I have never never heard a circus described in such an entrancing way.
I felt like I was there, watching a real circus act. I actually laughed at the clowns Especially reading about clowns Reading about clowns is not funny; it’s just annoying. What kind of enchanting writing could actually make me laugh at clowns?!? I can see why the writing style not the subject material is compared to J. It really sucks you into this other world and makes it real for you.
My only complaint about this book is that some of the plot developments are a bit too fantastical and coincidental to be believable. Granted, it’s a book about a boy who speaks cat-language, but still That made it a 4-star book for me, instead of the 5-stars I might have given it. Can’t wait to read the rest of this trilogy! Reading it for the second time is just as good!
Nov 08, Ravencrantz rated it it was ok Recommends it for: This book has been sitting on my shelf since middle school and honestly I wish I read it back then because I think I would have enjoyed it more. I mean, it’s great. It has a POC as the main character and that’s something I always love because we need more diversity in books. Plus he can talk to cats. I’m thinking that was the reason I picked this book up all those years ago. That or the shiny cover.
I finished it pretty quickly, so I mean it didn’t take up a lot of my time, but I just don’t think This book has been sitting on my shelf since middle school and honestly I wish I read it back then because I think I would have enjoyed it more. I lionnoy it pretty quickly, so I mean it didn’t take up a lot of my time, but I just don’t think I read this at the right time.
It was certainly aimed at a younger audience which is why I gave it to my younger cousin when I finished it. The writing was very direct and spelled things out for the reader and personally I would rather try to figure things out for myself.
