"Zizou Corder" is a mother/daughter writing team from England. This first collaboration in a proposed trilogy is set in the near future at a time when fossil fuel has nearly run out and respiratory diseases are epidemic. Charlie Ashanti comes home one day to find that his scientist parents have been kidnapped. Barely escaping the same fate, Charlie begins a search to find them. The adventure that follows includes bumbling villains, a floating circus, and, since it just so happens that Charlie can speak "cat," helping the circus lion break out and go on the lam. This engaging story is full of originality, snappy dialogue, and humor. Simon Jones couldn't be better; he displays a feather-light and well-timed comic delivery. It's clear he's enjoying himself as much as the listener does. D.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award
