What do you do when you come home one day and discover that your parents have been kidnapped? Well, if you're a brave young guy named Charlie Ashanti, you go off in search of them. And since you happen to know how to speak Cat, your feline friends—the stray cats of the city and the caged lions on a magnificent, astounding floating circus—rally around you, bringing help, advice, and occasional special deliveries. Little do you know that in this search of yours, the fate of the world is at stake. Sink your claws into the spellbinding tale of Lionboy. Meet a cast of characters you'll never quite forget—the good, the rotten, the ambiguous, and the delightfully weird.

Charlie Ashanti is the son of two scientists who are kidnapped as the result of a dramatic discovery they've made (the cure for asthma, which is rampant in this near-future world). Ten-year-old Charlie decides to go in search of them, and uses his ability to speak Cat (which he's had ever since he was scratched by a leopard as a baby) to gain helpful information. The local cats of London point him in the right direction and even deliver messages from him to his parents and back. When Charlie finds himself aboard a floating circus that's heading to Paris, he befriends the circus lions, who become his further accomplices. He'll help them escape the circus as this first book in a trilogy draws to a close.
