The book I’ve just read is called Lionboy and if you like books about friendship or if you like animals especially cats you really have to read it. It is a really exiting story. If you once start to read it you really can’t stop and you always want to know how the adventure goes on.
The main character of the book is a friendly and brave boy called Charlie Ashanti. He seems quite normal. His parents are scientists. They can make very healthy medicines and lotions and exactly that is the problem. The book plays in the future and many children are ill. They have asthma. Charlie’s clever parents had found a medicine against it and that is when they get in trouble. Somebody wants their skills and for sure it is somebody who doesn’t want to do something good for the people.
So when Charlie comes home and his parents aren’t there, he decides to rescue them. With the help oft he cats, his only friends, he finds out that his parents are kept in Paris .
With a boat he wants to get to Paris , but when he gets to a swimming circus called Circe, everything changes, because there are lions too.
And Charlie is he only one who can talk to them.
The lion’s mad trainer Maccomo gives them a drug to make them more gently, but when Charlie figures that out he of course tries to help the lions and together they plan to run away from the circus and find Charlie’s parents.
If you want to know how this great story continues and if Charlie manages o rescue his parents you have to read the book!
Lionboy is the first book of three volumes, it is one of my favorite books, because you could really identify with Charlie. And it is very riveting to read.
Have fun reading it!
