Charlie Ashanti and his lions on the lam return in LionBoy: The Chase by Zizou Corder, illus. by Fred Van Deelen, the sequel to LionBoy. Here Charlie travels to Venice, where he mistakenly thinks his parents (kidnapped in book one) are being held. Charlie learns further details about "Allergenie" cats and their relationship to the human allergy plague as his parents mount an escape from the Corporacy. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Gr 4-8-This second book in the trilogy finds Charlie Ashanti right where readers left him: on a train with escaped circus lions in the King of Bulgaria's bathroom. But although the previous book ended with Charlie and the lions abruptly finding safety and warmth, "without a doubt, there were going to be troubles ahead." That is an understatement. Charlie and the lions manage to travel from the Alpine mountains to Paris and then on to Venice, eventually ending in Morocco with the promise of forthcoming adventures. Along the way they are pursued, captured, held prisoner, escape, stow away on a boat, and experience a host of other trials, all the while uncovering bits and pieces of the nefarious plot put into action by big drug companies and corrupt governments. Luckily the suspense and hairpin turns not only keep the story moving forward, but they also keep the messages from becoming too didactic. The supporting cast is enormous, and readers may find themselves wishing for fewer characters with more depth as their motives and actions are often too vague and capricious to follow. Still, in the end, there are plenty of questions left unanswered, and fans of the young Lionboy will leave this installment looking forward to the third book.-Genevieve Gallagher, Murray Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
