"Lionboy, an ingenious fantasy-cum-ripping-yarn about young Charlie Ashanti's search for his kidnapped scientist parents, delivers a great dose of circus excitement, complete with glitter, exotica, and animal smells. And if it did only that, it would be well worth the read. But there's more: the potent, evergreen childhood fantasy of speaking animal language." (The New York Times Book Review)
