Charlie and his lion friends have made it safely to Venice, but it turns out that their journey has only just begun. King Boris's palace was meant to be a haven, but it's starting to feel more like a prison. When word arrives from the cat grapevine that his parents are not being held in Italy after all, Charlie knows he must take fast action. Luckily a new ally has come on the scene-and just in the knick of time: Rafi is in hot pursuit.

This second book in the Lionboy trilogy is even more action-packed than the first, offering clever escapes, shipwreck, a prehistoric beast named Primo who will prove himself a great hero, and surprises that will shock and delight. It's an exhilarating, suspenseful whirlwind of a story, and readers will be clamoring for more.

He didn’t want to look the major in the face when he was about to trick him out of his lions. “Looking forward to the parade tonight?” “Oh yes, sir,” said Charlie. “And the show tomorrow?” “Oh yes, sir.” “Know what you’ve got to do?” “Yes, sir, and looking forward to it!” said Charlie bravely. “Mighty glad, mighty glad,” said

European motorways, Magdalen and Aneba read the letter from Charlie. Magdalen managed to unfold it, and Aneba wriggled into a position where he could read it aloud. A lone streetlight sent its weak gleam in through the grubby window of the truck. “It’s upside down,” Aneba said very quietly. He didn’t want Winner overhearing. “Turn it to the left a bit so it’s in the light.” Darling Mummy and Daddy, It was really good to get your letter. Everything’s going okay for me. Brother Jerome is

He was holding his long elegant whip, and in ringing tones he proclaimed: “Ladies and gentlemen, meine damen und herren, mesdames et messieurs, welcome to Thibaudet’s Royal Floating Circus and Equestrian Philharmonic Academy, the Show of Shows, the Night of Nights: Tonight for your

received a report about some wild animals on the roof of a speeding train in a howling storm, you have put this together with some tale about a disappearing boy who is either on the train or not, and you fear they may all be hiding in my coffeepot, and you are embarrassed to ask me to have it searched. Is that it?” “Yes,” said the Chef du Train, in a tiny voice this time. “The boy was put on the train in your car.” “Tut, tut,” said the king. “That wasn’t very security-minded of your people, was
