“Lionboy,” by Zizou Corder

“Lionboy,” by Zizou Corder is the first book in a marvelous science fiction trilogy set in the future.

Cover of Lionboy by Zizou CorderThe main character is Charlie Ashanti, a young boy with the unique ability to speak to cats. When his parents are kidnapped under mysterious circumstances, its up to Charlie to try to find them. He sets off with nothing but his unique language ability, a strange piece of parchment, and a small pride of lions that he has liberated from a circus.

There are plenty of obstacles in Charlie's way, though. Not only is he being tracked by someone who wants to kidnap him too, but his parents have been kidnapped by The Corporation. Charlie's mother and father had discovered a cure for asthma. In Charlie's future world gasoline powered cars have been done away with because they caused deadly asthma attacks in children. Now that the air is cleaner children are having fewer asthma attacks and The Corporation is no longer making as much money off of its asthma medicine. But The Corporation has a plan to cause asthma again, a plan involving super-allergenic cats. Charlie's mother and father stand in the way and The Corporation doesn't want that.

“Lionboy,” is set in a very well designed world. The details defining the Lionboy world are immaculate, and the plot is interesting. Charlie's world traveling adventure is fascinating and I'm confident that young readers will enjoy “Lionboy” and its two sequels.

Note: The author Zizou Corder is not a real person. Rather it is a stage name used by Louisa Young and Isabel Adomakoah Young.
