Lionboy: The Chase was a great listen!

My 12 year old son and I listen to audiobooks in the car on the way to school, we both enjoyed this continuing adventure. The story move along quickly and the developments with the characters we met in the first story keep you engaged right up to the exciting conclusion of this book!
Simon Jones is one of the best narrators we have ever heard - We have enjoyed his reading of other stories and he doesnt disappoint with this one!

Magnifico

This book picks up EXACTLY where Lionboy left off. The narrator is the same, and still fabulous, and the storytelling is the same as well. The writing by this authoress-duo is appeals mainly to the elementary/middle school audience.

The characters are the same as Lionboy - still fabulous - the locations are totally different - still exotic - and the plot keeps going right along - still magnifico. This book provides us with a glimpse of what those exotic locales might feel like in the not-so-distant future, making me want to look up more about all of them as soon as I have the free time (that is assuming there is such a thing as free time and a wormhole opens up to deliver it to me at some point.)

The authors have kept up their trend of almost-but-not-quite sympathetic antagonists, and their entirely-too-smart-but-still-beliveable protagonists. There are probably just not enough good things to be said about this series and this book. Hurrah for the Corders!
